Does anybody have the torque settings for the left rear (crankcase) cover?

There are the three large bolts around the bearing area and then the small 8mm bolts around the edge of the cover, and one in the middle.

I can't find the torque settings in the manual.

Thanks

Outer belt cover Right? 6MM bolts 10MM head 7-9lbf-ft . 8MM bolts 12MM head 16-20lbf-ft manual is confusing Page 1-11 at the top. Fastener types are different.

Are you talking about final gearbox cover ?, std torque for 8mm low tension(reduced head or allen)) bolts is 22NM/16ft/lbs, high tension(built in flange/washer) 26NM/20ft/lbs, see SW shop manual 1-11. I usually do 24NM/18ft/lbs on most 8MM bolts.

Very useful info above, thanks. The manual is confusing I agree. I'm talking about the aluminium 'pulleys and belt' cover. There are three larger bolts around the rear pulley shaft bearing housing and then the smaller bolts around the edge of the casing plus the one in the middle, nicely hidden! (For simple reference, I usually call the bolt size by its head size rather than the stem thickness or thread pitch).

One more thought. Do the bolts have to be secured in a particular sequence to prevent distortion?

 This is mostly a PSA, As a general rule any panel or cover having multiple fasteners should be tigthened  from center out in a criss/cross pattern, but mostly applies to large contact area surfaces, this particular cover(belt cover) is a very robust part and it's aligned by dowel pins, don't believe it will migrate/slide any when torqued, honestly as this is considered a service cover and will get removed more often, I would stay in the low range of torque range to prevent thread damage in the long run, so 10nm(7ft/lbs) for 6mm and 22nm(16ft/lbs) for 8mm should be good IMO, install the bolts finger tight and then torque, Just make sure your bolt and case threads are clean/oil free for true torque reading. I like to do sharpie marker stripes(witness marks) on larger bolts JIC I don't have a torque wrench handy at some point. BTW don't use any loctite, etc. on regular service bolts.

This is the kind of stuff I need to know. Thanks. It's worth knowing a little of the science involved with this stuff. I will think of nuts and bolts in a different way from now on. The sharpie marks are a good idea too.

I suspect I've been a bit heavy-handed in the past so here's to new philosophy Cool
