I removed my swing arm on my '06 ST to service all the bearings and pivots. Upon reassembly I noticed a disparity in the torqueing numbers in the factory manual for the clamping ring locking ring.

On page 12.2 the exploded parts view says to torque to the following values:
Clamping ring - 15Nm
Locking ring - 15Nm
Spindle bolt - 60Nm

However on page 12.15 the installation procedure says to torque to these values:
Clamping ring - 15Nm
Locking ring - 30Nm
Spindle bolt - 60Nm

In the torque wrench settings table under the suspension section on page 1.33 the values are the same as in the installation procedure but identifies the parts as follows:
Swing arm end-float adjuster = clamping ring
Swing arm lateral adjuster lock nut = locking ring

I've read that some folks have had issues with the locking ring coming loose and this may be why if using only the values given in the exploded view.

Hi
The Haynes manual says:
adjuster bolt:15Nm
adjuster bolt lock nut: 30Nm
Pivot Bolt: 60Nm
And that's what I'll be using when I put mine back together

Do you have a single sided swingarm, or a double side swingarm?

That is the reason for the different torque settings.

There is only one swing arm type on the '06 ST and that's single. The torque spec referenced are out of the factory manual for the '06 as stated.
