I looked all over the Dr manual and could't find the torque values for the clutch cover bolts. Can someone chime in on this? Thanks. Paco

If you try and torque them to spec your follow up question(s) will be:

1 "How do I repair a stripped thread in the case?"
2. How do I remove a broken bolt out of a case?"

Exactly, I'm trying to avoid this. Ok so i'm just going to use some soft to median thread locker and with t handle use my oun jugement, what happens is torquing 7 lbs you can miss the click an keep going, resulting in screwed up threads or broken bolt ask me how I know. Paco

Just snug them. When I did mine (NSU fix) I did not use thread locker. No leaks.

Just snug then a tad more than finger tight... go ride... and retighten them the next morning.

Repeat process until the bolts are snug for 3 consecutive days.. :sarcastic:

No need for multi day tightening. Simply snug the up until they are tight by hand then maybe a 1/16th turn more in a criss cross pattern. No need using a long handle wrench or anything with lots of leverage. Also no thread locker.

6 nm as per manual, and done with a calibrated 0-20 nm torque wrench, or just snug, no thread locker.

Bigger range torque wrenches aren't accurate at low torques and will cause grief.
