Lucky for me, I didn't crack any of the cases then.
Well that's a relief I'm sure. Some of the torque figures on the bike are surprisingly low, for example the lower triple clamp bolts, which are only 8Nm. You would have thought these needed to be much tighter, but they only need to exert just enough pressure to "distort" the clamps and grip the fork tubes. Anything more than that and you risk cracking the casting (and people have). By contrast some of the suspension bolts on the V4 are rated at 120Nm and the front frame bolts are 90Nm (double those of the V2 Panigale), so go figure. If in doubt, stick to the factory specs and you can't go wrong.
Thanks from PanigaleV4S
