Torque Setting For Air Box

Postby howie333 » Sun Jan 29, 2012 7:16 pm

07 650R
I'm putting together my top end after doing a valve inspection and throttle body sync and installing the air box to the throttle body (4 allen bolts); I cant find torque specs for those 4 allen bolts. I'm sure I could just tighten them by hand, but I'm sure it's important to be tight not to loosen and fall into the intake ports.

Please reply,
Howie...

Thanks for reply;
Is it a good idea to use threadlock 242 on those threads? None was used oem.
