Good to know. I just went with "fairly tight". I guess I should check the torque.

That's a service manual page.
 
Did you find a PDF, or you have a paper copy?

29 lbs? Really? Why not just 30?
 
Anyway, thanks for the info, was going to do a few things today, I'll be able to easily slip that in.

Because in metric it's just about an even 40 n-m.

40 nm is 29.5 ft lbs. It seems like it should round to 30, not 29.

No that's actually an owner's manual that I found online for the MT07 on pdf.Here's the link http://www.yamaha-motor.eu/uk/services/owner-manuals/index.aspx
Thanks very much for that. I must have glossed right over the front end torque specs.
Got the rear axle and adjusters due to a sheet metal screw poking thru.

ah ok, makes sense. I'll just use 40 nm on my torque wrench.

I would round it down because I would assume there is already a factor of safety in it and you never want to over tighten a bolt.

I haven't done mine yet and I am curious how tight those bolts are.I am going to use my torque wrench to loosen bolts to see what torque yamaha used on assembly.I know the oil drain plug was very tight.Will post ones done.
