|Subject: Need torque specs for front brake caliper Mon Sep 12, 2011 7:54 pm|| |
So, a negligent dealer service shop recently redid my front fork seals (cost me a fortune and took them two weeks). I got the bike home 350 miles later on a trailer and didn't ride it around too much for a while.
Now, I've put about 500 miles on it and I started hearing weird noises from the front wheel area. I figured I'd take a look at it when I got home. Noises got worse and I finally pulled over to take a look. One of the bolts from the brake caliper (#19 on the microfiche breakout, called BOLT, FLANGE (8X32)) had completely fallen out and is lost, and the other #19 was barely finger-tight.
So, a very angry letter is in order, but in the mean time, I want to get back out on the road. I bought a service manual from eBay but have no idea when I'll get it. Can one of you gentlemen look in your service manual and see what the torque values are for those two bolts so I can get it going again? I'd really appreciate it!
