    As a beginner on the learning process on How-2-Do the maintenance of my bikes this will be a value-added document so...  :493:

    Thank you for the  :460: :460:

    don't forget there are different torque settings for lubed bolts and dry, if you copperslip or similar a bolt that has a dry (non lubricated)torque setting and tighten to the dry setting, you have possibly over tightened it,
    before anyone says they have never had a problem,you might not have, but you have been lucky,  its bad practice...
     have a look on google and see what can happen, especially on smaller bolts,
    i,m a mechanical fitter at a power station , and also run a bike mot business, i see overtightened stretched/snapped bolts all the time,usually down to this problem...a bolt too tight can snap, stretch beyond its elasticity limit and loosen/snap,or it can just strip the threads , whatever, not good........
    if you must lube a dry bolt and torque up, accepted practice at work is torque to 75%, but that isn't exact, so don't quote me....

    another point to note is a setting for say, an 8mm bolt will not be the setting for a similar looking bolt elsewhere, base metal, thread type, heat (expansion/contraction), and different bolt material all play a part, so double check, don't just think its the same as the last bolt,
    sorry if I'm teaching folk to "suck eggs" here, but some genuinely don't realise, (if they did i wouldn't have so many stud extractor's, lol)

    note on torque wrenches too,
    use them, then when finished, back them off, so theres no tension on the spring,
    if you don't they quickly become inaccurate....

    Another thanks for the Torque chart.

    A further note on torque wrenches is to use the correct size of wrench, using a 1/2" drive to torque an M6 bolt will most likely end badly as torque wrenches are not accurate at their extremes of measurement. 

    A 1/4", 3/8" & 1/2" should cover everything on a motorcycle.

    The only time I have used torque wrenches in the last 50 or so years is for things where even torque is critical. Cylinder head bolts for example.
    The main benefit of torque wrenches is to stop home mechanics over tightening every bolt. Once you learn to tighten things enough and not over tighten they become largely redundant.
