Hi there!

I just received my new Rizoma Crash Bobins for my XSR700.

They look pretty neat!

I just have a question regarding the tightness of the bolts.

According to the service manual the torque for the original bolt is 75Nm.

I saw on youtube a guy installing the same bobins on a mt-07 at 55Nm.


Does anyone knows the right torque for the engine bolt??

Cheers

I have the same Crashpads and I also tightened them just "normally" (i.e. as tight as possible) since I don't have anything to measure the torque. Do you think it makes a big difference if you don't tighten them up exactly as specified? Does it cause any vibration issues or something similar? I experience some vibration at high speeds and I suspect this might be the cause. What do you think?

Hi all,
**** those look a fine looking set of bobbins! Very flash and stylish.

I very recently had the the same query with some Barracuda bobbins? I even mailed the manufacturers, who, almost amusingly replied, "we've never been asked that before so we don't know.".

After sitting with my mouth open for a while, I just went for the 75nm. Alls fine so far.

It must be that if a torque isn't specified it's the standard factory torque for the original bolt I reckon.

I know what you mean. Owning a set of these I might have a hard time taking them out of the box and mounting them on my bike or just have a harder time exposing my bike to certain situations outside.

Hee hee.....heard that YamahaFan! I went out for a country ride yesterday and hit a lovely patch of heavy gravel on the blind side of a bend. A change of trousers later and I'm still grinning.

I fitted these babies to mine. You can buy inserts for the center separately if you like. Quite like this Barracuda stuff..

Hi!

Sorry for the absence, here's a pic of the bike with the bobbins.

Regarding vibrations I haven't experienced any. Everything's ok so far.

Cheers.

Looks great. At the same time while I like bobbins in black, because of the color scheme's we get, i'm wondering what other color bobbin will work. Would anyone here go with anything aside from Black?
