    Hi,
    Just bought a new carbon hugger and tank trims for my gen one.
    Can anyone advise the correct torque settings for these?
    Thanks

    They're not torque critical or structural. The tank trim parts have locking thread "T" nuts so they won't normally come undone. Just nipping them up is fine. Normal torque for these "shoulder" type screws will be ~6nm.

    The hugger screws go straight into the swingarm, a tiny amount of medium 242 blue loctite will suffice, again, 6nm will be plenty.

    Smithy.
