Front/Rear Wheel Nut Torque Specs?

Does anyone know what are the torque specifications for front and rear wheel nuts in foot pounds?

Also, where are the best places to purchase the special rear socket and front wheel alignment tool?

60 ft lbs front, 220 newton meters rear. The front axle pinch bolts are 22 ft lbs.

When i got the 1k service I asked the mechanic for torque specs on a number of bolts. The pinch bolts for the chain adjustmnet is 42-44 ft lbs.

If you call a Ducati dealer, ask for service then politely ask them what the torque spec is. They will gladly tell you. (unless you start asking for every bolt on the bike. I would keep the list short.)

Not sure on the front caliper bolts. I would guess 22-24 ft lbs. That's what most of my previous bikes have been.

Also, the mechanic (duc tech level 3) that worked on my bike said to have someone step on the rear brake when tightening or losening the rear axle nuts. Do not just leave it in gear. You could damage the tranny.

For the front axle, insert the axle and hand tighten the axle nut on the left side. Tighten the right side pinch bolts. Torque the axle. Spin the front tire and grab the front brakes and repeat this a few time. This will center the wheel. Tighten the left side pinch bolts. Double check all the bolts for proper torque. Mark the bolt using a paint stick or marker.

BTW, 220 nm is 162 ft lbs. Time for me to get a new torque wrench I guess.

You're welcome. It is too bad that their is no manual out for this thing. I am wondering though. Where are the exploded view diagrams, that we sometimes see on posting in this forum, coming from? Some on-line source. I sure wish I knew the URL.

Oh well. maybe someone will know.
