Title: Tiger 800 Torque Specifications (2015 - on)
Post by: ernie_h on April 11, 2016, 07:25:12 PM
Some changes vs. the "2012-on" sticky. This version applies to XR/XRx/XRt and XC/XCx/XCa. Enjoy!

Note: The original file was too large to attach.
The complete file is the "small size" file (optimized .pdf file, i.e., reduced file size)
The other two files split the original file into 2 files (pg 1-6, and pg 7-12)
If you don't like the print in the "small size" file, download "1-6" AND "7-12" two files instead

Thanks for that, very practical to have.

I've a question though that's been on my mind for a while now.
How important is it to apply the correct torques? I'm not very much a DIY myself, but i see plenty of "professionals" do it without torque wrenches (tyre guy, garage guy, Even the Triumph guy, ...).

And again, many thanks. Very helpful to have the correct values on a "cheat sheet" rather than look up the sections in the manual, thank you!

I've a question.

...i see plenty of "professionals" do it without torque wrenches (tyre guy, garage guy, Even the Triumph guy, ...).
Sometimes, it can be critically important -- other times, not so much.
Professional mechanics work with wrenches and fasteners every day and learn the differences between torque specs -- they also tend to use appropriately sized tools for the fastener and torque spec (large tools for big/heavy; small tools for small/light).
They also tend to learn the consequences of not being attentive to (important) torque specs...  :003:
Of course, there's nothing better than being exact -- but, veteran mechanics may have a good sense of what torque is required - when.
An old mechanic once told me: "They were building motorcycles long before they were making torque wrenches."  :002:

And sometimes even they screw up.  I have a friend in Alaska who headed down the Alcan after having his bike serviced in Anchorage (his home).  Somewhere in the middle of nowhere his rear brake caliper came off and took out half his spokes while he was cruising about 70mph.  He managed to get the bike stopped but it did about $5000 of damage (including a new swing arm).  The dealer mechanic had forgotten to torque the bolts on the caliper.  They did pick up the cost of repairs.

Forgetting to retighten caliper bolts is a very  common fault by mechanics

I'll remember that! Another reason I prefer to do my own maintenance if possible.

Is there a torque sheet for the tiger with LB-ft values?
