Been using both since '06.
TO 80%, yes. Just so nobody thinks they should lower it BY 80%.

If you are referring to the chart I linked, yes it is older than Greywolf's advice. I believe the numbers came from Suzuki Service manuals.

From memory that was based on the use of anti-seize. The original specs are based on the threads being clean and dry.

I set mine at 58 dry and with a clip through the nut and axle hole, I've experienced no problems. It's a good idea to grease the axle though. One of my beemers kinda rusted in place and it took a couple whacks on the axle to knock it loose.
