I exclusively use CDI (Snap-On Industrial Brand) and Proxxon.

Amazon carries CDI
RevZilla carries Proxxon

I've got a CDI also. Its a great torque wrench. 10-60nm. I keep it in the kitchen next to the bread box to keep it out of the temperature swings of the garage. lol

Few things regarding the torque wrench I was using, for anyone who finds this thread in the future: It was set to 13.5nm (sorry, not 11nm, as I should have followed), which was the lowest the 10-100 ft/lb could go, so that was mistake #1. I hear the extreme ends of a torque wrench aren't as accurate.

Mistake #2, the torque wrench was not stored at its lowest setting. Never knew this was an issue until now.

Mistake #3, not my torque wrench. The clicking mechanism was so soft I didn't even feel it and shot right past it.

I have since ordered a new, more appropriate, torque wrench and plan to do the stator (?) cover side when I get the bike back. Fingers crossed I don't f it up again.
Well, just chalk that one up to lesson learned.

This is what I would buy if I had the cash

I have a Craftsman from Sears that isn't bad for about $40

I have a Hazet 6109-2 CT. It is 4 to 40 nm range and the release accuracy is +/- 2%. I have had it for a couple years now and works well for most of the torque range found on the 1199. They are a little more expensive but a quality tool. Made in Germany.

  • Replacing the clutch housing
  • helicoil
  • Time certs
  • Other? (I’ve seen solutions from copper wires in the holes to jbweld as it’s not a load bearing part, but I’m not sure of its longevity or adherence to magnesium)

It’d be great to hear some opinions from here before I approach a couple local shops with this issue.
The V4 cover has an 'o'-ring seal and only requires 3nm - 3.5nm.........

There is a handy screw driver you can buy from PB Swiss tools which does 1nm to 5nm. Great for small bolts and screw like the fairing screws. I have never lost a fairing screw after buying it.
