Does anyone have a list of popular torque specs? I'm getting ready to do the first oil change and bolt check. Specifically, I'd also like to know the Rear Axle and Rear Sprocket bolt torques.

Thanks in advance!

The rear axle nut spec is 72.5lb-ft.
The rear sprocket nut spec is 43.5lb-ft.

Both are the same as earlier models and both have caused problems. Apply anti seize to the axle threads and torque to 58lb-ft to account for the lubrication effect of the anti seize or risk galling. Use 36lb-ft on the rear sprocket nut or risk breaking studs.

Otherwise, the values are generally the same as the old DL1000 at http://www.vstrom.info/Smf/index.php/topic,10963.0.html

Thank you Greywolf,
You and the others are great resources for us not so mechanical V and Wee riders. I have read and used your shared knowledge since I bought my 2008 Wee and now while outfitting my new 2016 Wee find it fantastic.

Thank you again.

FWIW I just ordered a factory service manual from here:
service-shop-repair-manual.com for a very affordable $45 new. I will review my purchase when it arrives.

Quite a few of the torque values are in the owner's manual for stuff like axle/axle pinch bolts, oil drain plug, caliper bolts, etc.

It's good the link didn't come up. It's a pirate site. If it's the one I'm thinking of, the black plastic connector along the spine is evident. Genuine factory service manuals are book bound with glued ends and are never under $80 new. $90 or so is typical.

You may just be right...I looked and didn't notice the phrase "factory spec quality manual". Dang, I hate getting duped and supporting these shysters. I just saw the slick looking paper in vibrant color and assumed it was the real deal...
You'd expect this from China or another loosely regulated country, but this guy seems to be based in the U.S.
In my defense my Honda factory manuals have been in the $50-65 range from Helm Inc (official site), so I didn't think the price was too far off...

Beware!

The rear axle nut spec is 72.5lb-ft.
The rear sprocket nut spec is 43.5lb-ft.

I started to torque the rear sprocket nuts and quickly realized that the 43 ft. lbs. listed in the manual was a problem. I found that 36 is the most they'll take and you've confirmed it. Thanks.
