Here is a link to a pdf file ... which is the 2005 triumph rocket 3 owners manual

It shows the shows the correct location of the oil sump plugs (which are in a different position to 2004

rockets) on page 57.

And it shows under the tyres section that Bridgestone now supply officially approved tyres for the rocket 3 on page 98

I have finally changed the oil my my rocket. (using the 2005 owners manual to get the location of the 3 sump plugs )as above.

Question: I have hand tightened the new oil filter.. Is this sufficient .... to get the required torque setting of 10NM ?
