Triple Clamps

Hey Jeremy

In your post regarding fork alignment you say to tighten the top clamps to 280 in lb, and the lower to 220 in lb. My '01 YZ426 manual says to tighten top to 17 ft lb,(204 in lb) and lower to 14 ft lb (168 in lb) which is correct?

i would go by your manual, my guess that every bike is alittle different. i can't remember what i did on my CR but i think it was close to your measurments. If you do it to yor manual's specs you atleast know that you aren't hurting anything.

Always go with the manual... I don't actually use a torque wrench... Feel is more important than spec IMO.. Some people can devlop a feel others cannot!
