I've been reading thru some threads and can't find a definitive answer.

What is the correct torque specifications for tightening the bolts on the ABC pivots on my 2014 Altitude?

From the 2014 tech manual...

Hardware and Torque Specification:

All custom hardware (alloy thru-bolts, screws, and nuts) requires the use of LOCTITE 243 (blue) a medium strength thread-lock. The torque specification unless otherwise stated is 100 to 110 in*lbs or 11.3 to 12.4 Nm.

Non custom hardware (steel bolts) requires the use of LOCTITE 243 (blue), a medium strength thread-lock. The torque specification unless otherwise stated is 60 to 80 in*lbs or 6.7 to 9.0 Nm.

Hi rocky,

Just looking for a little more clarification on this because I don't want to over torque anything... on my 2014 Instinct, all of the M6 x 12 mm and the M8 x 16 mm socket screws should be tightened to 100-110 inch-pound except for the two near the dropouts?

Any help greatly appreciated!
