Torque Values
« on: May 13, 2017, 12:35:45 PM »
Howdy gents,
Just finished installing a quick change carrier with a 41 tooth sprocket and a new chain.
I'm not sure if the ecentric hub bolt torque is the same for most Ducatis. 
Some forums say 22 ft/lbs. for the 916, 748, etc.
I can't seem to find the values in the manual.  Anyone have a clue?

In the MHe Maintenance Manual they're at the end of the Frame Section for the frame (Section E) and the end of the Motor Section for the motor (Section F).

Chain Adjusting Eccentric Screw is what you're looking for.  They're to be tightened to 70 Nm (52 lb*ft) after greasing them.  Tighten one screw, then the other, then the first one again (1-2-1 in Ducati terminology).  This is a steel swingarm rather than the aluminum unit used on 916.
