Tightening Alternator Rotor Bolt
« on: June 04, 2022, 03:07:32 PM »
Whats the recommended method for tightening the alternator stator bolt? I'm fitting the CR750 replica with the modified cover that allows the use of the starter motor (been waiting months for the modified cover/spragg clutch adaptor).
I usually put the bike in gear and tighten the bolt with the back brake on but can't get a 'crisp' final tighten due to the 'spring' in the chain.
How do you get a confident tightening? Whats the correct torque setting and should I put threadlock on the thread?
Thanks
