is your 36 mm socket a 6 point or a 12 point? 6 point is less likely to round things off. It seems that greywolf recommended 58 ft pounds torque with anti seize to tighten it up. don't get the chain as tight as the manual says.
6-pt. i was going to do 65 ft lb and use marine grease on threads. Would think Suz would update owners guide for a new bike if 72 was wrong?
Has anyone else adj their chains yet? I have about 1.5" of play and was only going to go to 1.2 which is max per owner guide.
1st, on the wrench, Rick at Adv.Tech makes on that fits the F&R axles. Always in my tool tube for on the road repairs.
2nd The 1.2 isn't enough. 1.5 should be min. At 1.2 or less the chain becomes taunt in the tightest position. Mine is 1.5 -2.0.
No need to overtighten the axle, as 58 ft lbs is plenty(Greywolf's suggestions were always accurate)
Yes, the stock axle nuts and standard universal nuts for that size thread have different outside dimensions. That is important if you carry an emergency axle nut wench. What fits the stock nut may not fit a replacement nut.
