      I think the list you're looking for is on my site, originally one of Trinc's files:

      EDIT: THESE ARE 98+ TORQUE SPECS

            Those were 98+ Torque specs. I just edited the entry to reflect that fact.

              Is there any difference in the torque spec for the 04+ front axle that doesn't have a nut but a 12mm hex bolt? Or is it the same as what's listed for the 98+ front axle nut?

                The Bandit's rear axle torque spec is 61-83lbs too. I'm suspicious the 47 ft/lb...

                  there are torque spec with the cotter and a torque spec without the cotter, too different specs.
                  88-97 Katana 600
                  with cotter - 36-58
                  without - 40-63
                  same for the 750
                  there isn't a torque spec on the bolts, there is on the NUT.

                    The 04 front axle doesn't have a nut. One end of the axle has a 12mm hex socket and the other end is threaded and screws directly into the left fork. There is no nut. I was asking whether the torque spec for that is different from the nut torque for 98-03.

                    Arsenic, from your reply it seems like they may be different. Can anyone with a 04+ service manual chime in ?

                      I know that, there isn't a manual for the 03-06 yet, they usually come out 5 years after production, there's a factory manual, but I don't have it. That front axle set up showed up in 03, not 04.

                        Ok, thanks Chris. So anyone know the torque spec for the 03+ front axle?

                          The post-98 models get addendum's added to the back of the 98 manual -- and page 14-15 for the 04 750 manual addendum says (values identical for the 04-06 Kat 600 & 750's):

                            Thanks for the info CP. Couldn't find this on KR or on motorcycleanchor.com when I checked yesterday.

                            44 ft-lb is right about where the axle began to feel snug yesterday. I backed off due to the 32 ft-lb spec screaming in my head and left it there. Will tighten it back up to 47 ft-lb today.

                            Mods, consider making this thread a sticky?

                              Double checking, so this would be correct for an 05 750?
