Cam Plugs Need Replacing
Written by goldwingman40 on 8/1/2011 at 04:43 pm

It is #8 and should be the same as #9, 27 N-m or 20 Ft-Lbs. There is also no
torque listed in the picthure for #7, 6mm bolts, which is in the chart in the
front listed as 9 N-m, 7 Ft-Lbs.

the plugs. Note that one of the torque specs on that page is wrong (if I
remember correctly). I think it's #8 and it should be something more like 21
N-m... The correct value is in the front of the manual. Does anyone else know
if I'm remembering that correctly?
