Torque Specs Please (Chain Adjuster Helper??)
on: November 30, 2020, 03:31:18 AM
I don't know what these are called so my search results didn't come up with much

Here's my diagram



Orange box  - ??

Yellow box - The Rear axle Nut (108 nm or 80 ft-lbs)

Blue box with the two screws - ??

Thank you for any assistance!

Orange box = It's an 8mm so the general rule is about 14ft-lbs. But just know, you will not be able to use a torque wrench on it because of what is in the way (it will make sense when you do it). Just use BLUE loctite and tighten it with a regular allen wrench.
Yellow box = 108nm is 80 ft-lbs  :008: And yes, that's the proper torque.
Blue box = This isn't actually torqued. You use it to adjust the fore-n-aft. Once the chain has proper slack, just tighten the large axle nut. The adjuster has notches and clicks so it will not back out or become loose!!!!

ps. Don't over think this. The only torque that matters is the axle nut. Use grease on the nut threads and washer to help you get proper torque. Don't recommend doing it dry.
