Removing my Triumph case protection. Does anybody remember the torque values for these bolts? Clutch cover, stator and crank cover?

These?

BTW, check them all. I've read they sometimes loosen themselves. I know some of mine were loose.

Yes thank-you. I also need the values for what I believe is the crank cover on the right side in front of the clutch. There are 7 bolts there where you see the numbers 5, 4 and 8 (the ones pointing to the clutch cover bolts). Interestingly there appears to be a misprint in the numbers showing the order for the clutch as there is no #1 but two #2's.

I found my Triumph Motorcycle service handbook. I guess the values will be in there. I will check tomorrow.

If you're only removing case protection the order isn't important as it's only likely to be fixed with 3 bolts.
The torque on all the side cases bolts is the same at 10 or 11nm, personally tighten mine by feel, trust my many years of experience tightening things without leaks/loosening/stripping threads over my fairly cheap torque wrench.:grin2:

Sorry about that, kinda got busy and then we had some nasty weather last night (to say the least).

Take a look at this...

I was always taught and practiced when torquing critical parts to going around in proper sequence in the following basic order:
1- hand-run down all fasteners
2- lightly contact fasteners to parts
3- ascertain that component is fitted properly BEFORE any tightening - adjust as necessary
4- torque in recommended sequence to +/- 85% of value
5- torque in recommended sequence to one click below value
6- torque in recommended sequence to value - if you do not get a swing on your wrench examine it and go one click over value.
This seems like a detailed drawn-out and time consuming process but consider it against a cracked or stripped housing, cover or leak etc.
After a couple of times it’s second nature and absolutely inspires confidence.

I'm going to guess that #1 is the #2 that's down at around 8 o'clock. I could be wrong, though.

Thanks folks. I think I torqued them at 10 or 11 nm. Perhaps I can check em but realistically, margin of error and the accuracy of the torque wrench I own, I think 11 nm wouldn't be too much.

Can you guys answer an unrelated question?

Are there washers on the passenger seat under the bolts? I just removed the rear tailpack "mounting" (the zippered fabric thingy) and the instructions showed washers. I don't recall there being washers there.

I would have guessed the opposite since #1 was at the top (at 1 O'Clock) on the Alternator Cover and the rest of the numbers sorta line up between the two. Doubt it matters though.

DOH! Didn't think to compare it with the alternator cover. :(

S'ok. I torqued it up the way it seemed to make sense with a good back and forth. All done. She's at the dealer now waiting for a new owner :)

What (if anything) did you trade her for?
