Rear axle torque?

4400 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  dfaber
Hello all! New owner here. First post. Forgive me if it's been covered, but I'm picked up a used '03 999 and I'm working without an owner's manual. Is the rear axle nut a 36mm and what is the proper torque? The previous owner had the chain set way too tight I think.

Yep 180Nm +/- 5%. That's 133 lbft.

If you haven't got such a high range torque wrench, give it 70Nm (50 lbft) and then 1/4 turn.
