Anyone here have some information about what are the torque value for the different pivot on RM bikes.

The lower pivot (the one just over the BB) on my element came loose after 150km and would like to know how tight those should be.

If you have information about other RM frames it would also be great !

100 in lbs would be equal to 8.33 foot pounds, so if you have a 12" long allen key it would be the same as hanging an 8.33 pound weight on the end of it. If you have a 6" allen key, then it's like hanging 16.66 pounds on the wrench. Don't overtorque them of you can damage the aluminium bolt threads.

Silverfish has the entire 2008 tech manual on line which describes the need for grease, loctite etc. for those bolts.
