wheel spokes -how much nM? 500 EXC
Took my 2015 KTM 500 EXC 6 Days for it's first service.
I noticed they were tightening the spokes at 4nm.
When I pointed out that the manual says 6nm.
He said we do it at 4 here on all the bikes.
I said ok great but the manual says 6nm.
Doesn't the manual supersede everything.
He said sure & did them to 6nm.
I feel lost & confused.
It's not uncommon to find uniformed, poorly trained or complacent people in the service industry here.
Hence me being there the whole time while it was getting get serviced.
I had the manual propped open on the table as if I were testing the mechanics by referring to the manual.
I mean they're all obviously certified KTM mechanics but not very 'on top of things'.
They're the only KTM dealer/workshop in the area. There are other mechanics but I'd rather stick to the dealer.
I think I'll need a spokes torque wrench to tighten between rides, right? Suggestions?
