The cooler guard,as in the mesh screen protecting it, is just Phillips (JIS) head screws threaded into welded on threaded holes on the shroud, just crank them tight as hell, they won't have a torque spec. Kindalike asking what the torque spec is for a side panel cover. Blue loc tite is always wise when putting these things back together, since the DR is a giant vibrator. :lol:


Thanks but I was thinking of the mount / guard. The black tube that mounts to the frame and guards the oil cooler in case the bike falls

Ohhhhhh gotcha. Ok. Well, is there a number or markings on the bolt head? If so, the shop manual has a list of what torque bolts should be based on their markings as well.

Why are the torques specs, from any source I have found, all in foot and inch pounds and not Newton meters ?
Just curious is all.

Your bolt heads must look good after you insist on using your SAE sockets and wrenches on them I guess eh ? :s_crazy

LOL! I for one have a lot more metric tools than SAE tools... and least we forget my Witworth tools for the Norton days.

You are torquing plastic there, i just use a 8mm hex driver and tighten as usual. Not much force needed at all.

Torque for "clutch spring mounting bolt" is 10 N.m or 1.0 kg-m or 7.0 lb-ft as per Suzuki Service Manual page 7-25
