I recently had to pull the generator cover off because someone used JB Weld on the plug ($%*@). I am now re-installing and looking for torque specs and tightening pattern for the generator cover. Does any one know where to find this? As best I can tell it is not in the shop manual (04 1000DL).
I don't know if by "shop manual" you meant Suzuki's specific manual covering your year & model, or if you were referring to a Chilton, Haynes or some other manual.
At the risk of misleading you, here's some things I found in my official Suzuki DL650A Service Manual covering 2017. I would be very surprised if the official manuals are laid out noticeably different; which chapters follow which, IOW.
In the beginning Service Data chapter, 0c-12, is a section on fasteners, and they list torques for various sizes and types of fasteners. I think the other manuals have similar info.
In Chapter 1J, they discuss the Charging System, and the procedure to remove/install the generator cover starts on page 1J-7. It says to tighten the generator cover bolts to 10 Newton meters or 7.5 lb ft. It doesn't show a tightening sequence, but my rule-of-thumb is to lightly torque the bolts opposite each other then follow up tightening in the same pattern to the specified torque. It also says to install a new generator cover gasket.
IMHO, I would think that there is little if any difference in this type of non-load bearing part between the 650 and the 1000, and I personally would be OK with using that figure; not much more than finger tight anyway. But you do what you wish with this.
