Speaking of over-tightening, broke the countershaft sprocket bolt yesterday. Was a little bit careless (not using a torque wrench), but had hardly started tightening it when it sheared-off. Way down deep in there. Fortunately, the moto-gods smiled on me and was able to drill/extract it. Was not looking forward to splitting cases. By the way, 7000+ miles on this bike now, most of them on-road, about half of them with a cush-hub. Countershaft splines still look brand-new.
