    Anyone have the torque values for 2012 GS or know where to find them, other than BMW CD. I found this here... http://www.r1200gs.info/misc/torque.html (torque values for 2005 gs). Is it safe to assume values are same for similar components on the 2012? Thanks.

    All of the relevant torque values are the same.

    Post up what you are specifically looking for and I can verify them for you!

    Thanks Jim. Nothing specific right now. I am going over the bikelater this week just to make sure everything is snug, I am at about 3K miles. I am going to order your CD too in a few weeks. I appreciate all your input on this thread and your website tutorials.

    Is that to say your DVD media will change? I was just about to hit you up for the combo pack before I tear into my 1150. I wouldn't want an outdated set. :ear

    Not for those, they are up to date.

    I will be adding a new Accessories and a new Repair DVD soon, but they will cover different subjects.

    What I was really referring to are a couple of pictorials that I am going to add to my site, and on here.

    Cool.

    I've got your CamHead DVD and love it.

    The one thing I haven't seen here (and truthfully I haven't looked too hard) is the different torque values listed for using 'Never-Seez' or similar on bolts. Aren't those rated at 70% of original value? Granted, I understand the 'wet' value is only valid if the NeverSeez is used correctly - both sides of washer etc... at least that's what I have been told.

    My little system here is when i've ascertained that something is the right torque i use liquid paper/tippex etc for a small witness mark on all the bolts and nuts that matter i.e. wheels , brakes, swing arms , pivots etc. A quick walk around the bike when putting on the helmet and i can ride off in confidence.:*sip*

    Okay I can't find it but I was looking for torque values for the skid plate? The last guy stripped the bolts and screws I was trying to avoid the same fate this time.
