Hi all,
Is it recommended to use a Torque Wrench while installing frame sliders? I want to install the WometTech Frame Sliders and it recommends using the torque wrench but doesn't specify the tightening details.

Also, I don't have one, so might need to buy one or go to a service center.

Thanks!

Calibrated and trusted torque wrenches are tools we all should have in our box. That said, I don't use mine hardly at all for fasteners externally of the engine. Shame on me.
For reference, here are the torque specifications for the bolts found around the engine mounts. (First gen FZ09)

The tightening torques has been changed for the new model series MT-09 2021 and MT-09 2022( which I believe is the same)!
Example: engine mounting bolts lower front: 60 Nm (6.0 m kgf, 44 ft lbf)!!! (upper front is the same 45 Nm (4.5 m kgf, 33 ft lbf).
So, we need the new service manual(workshop manual) MT-09 2021(2022)!
If anyone can help, many thanks and is welcome for all of us!
