    My search engine skills are failing me. Picking my forks up tomorrow. On other bikes, I've snugged up the lower triple clamp bolts, then installed the wheel, then torque the lower triple clamp bolts, and finally the upper triple clamp bolts.

    That work here?

    Thanks.

    I usually put the axle in before tightening the triple clamp bolts to insure that both sides are equal distant from the top. Then the procedure you describe works ok. Be sure to not over torque the lower triple clamp bolts (12 NM on my 08 690e). The top are 17NM. The torque values should be embossed on the triple clamps.

    I am trying to figure out how to run my auxillary lights so they turn off with the ignition switch. I am afraid with my current setup I will forget one time and kill my battery. Anyone know how to do this? The lights have a hot wire that should be easy enough for setting this up. Just cant figure out if I should try to remove the fusebox and wire it into the back or what?

    There are 2 accessory power outlets behind the headlight mask. ACC1 and ACC2 - one is switched, but I can't remember which, but it easy to try and see.

    Thanks. The book for the 13 calls for the same torque values. Though both upper and lower triple clamp bolts "felt" like they had been torqued the same and to a higher value than that when I removed them. May have been the dry threads.

    12 nm = 106 in/lbs
    17 nm = 150 in/lbs

    Work gave me a conversion calculator application on the PC-an uber handy thing to have loaded.

    Any other conversions anyone needs?

    dividing by 12:

    12 nm = 106 in/lbs = 8.83 ft/lbs
    17 nm = 150 in/lbs = 12.5 ft/lbs

    :D

    Is that the same conversion for Canadians? So how many beer cans do we drink first to crush? :rofl

    Haven't you heard? A beer drinking Canadian is exempt from all that science/physics stuff. Just tighten it down until it strips, back it off half a turn...good to go. :D
