Go over to the YZ forum and at the top of the page there is a "common threads" sticky. You will find a "how to" in there along with so much more.

make sure when you tighten everything back up that the linkage actually moves , its very easy to crank everything down to tight .

Same here, I torque just about anything worth torquing. It really surprises me sometimes how little it takes.

I had 3 family members, all riders living in diff states, ask for a nice torque wrench for their bday or this past holiday. First thing they grab no matter the job.
