I have these in PDF format. Does this forum support something like a file repository? I looked in the FAQ and didn't see anything pertaining to it, so I'm assuming that it does not. Perhpas we could have just one sticky of "Maintenance How To-s" and within it, have links to the PDFs. Just some thoughts on the fly here.... but something to consider as we, as a forum, mature.

As to further How To-s, I'll post 'em as I encounter 'em. (I don't see any more in the VERY near future...) I enjoy doing them and I feel that it is a small way to repay my debt to all the other forums out there from which I have learned to do this stuff. (Standing on the shoulders of others, etc.)
Great idea, and thank you very much for all the work you put into these. They will be very handy whenever my bike comes in

Thanks again!

on D650/600 it was 105Nm, I assume it's still the same.

Also, on how to measure chain slack, saw my mechanic do this which I thoguht was quite smart: instead of trying to find a spot ON the swing arm as starting poinnt fo the ruler (which has been what I've been doingn and I ofudn it hard to find a secure point to get an accurate reading), he used a tape measure on the floor, hook the tape end to the chain, securely and easily, to get one reading, move the chain up while the tape is still hoked, you get the second one, I was like wow! anyhow, thought it was a good technique.

It may be worth noting axle bolt is torque is 81 ft lbs.

My chain had over 50mm of slack after only 90 miles, looked like it wanted to fall off the spocket!

Thank you for your post, it made all the differenc.

FYI,

I've had my bike for 500 miles and I've adjusted the chain twice, thanks to this post.

Sugguest the first time you adjust your chain you should shoot for the 35mm range over the 40mm, it may strecth again first ride, hell I'd even go to 30mm for the first adjustment, it gets loose quick, must be that all torque!
