Torque Spec.
« on: March 16, 2017, 07:59:24 PM »
Does anyone happen to know what the tightening torque spec. is for the rear sprocket nuts on a 76/77? FSM, Clymer and search yield no reference.

As tight as your 3/8" impact will get them, and check them frequently!

In all seriousness, those things hold your sprocket, and chain, on the bike. They need to be tight and not able to vibrate loose. I always just tighten the absolute crap out of them, and check them about every 4-500 miles, or right after if I'm on a long, or bumpy, trip.
