450 Torque Correction
Posted February 14, 2003 - 01:45 PM
These entries now read: 85 Nm (8.5 m/kg, 61 ft/lb)
I purchased my WR450 from a dealer owned by a close friend. He has not been notified by Yamaha of any problems yet. Will advise soonest when he does.
BTW, my bike is #1041. No probs yet, but only a few hours on it.

My dealer has been advised by Yamaha to lap the rotor & shaft and retorque to the original spec of 47 ft/lbs. They have revised the torque spec that they corrected in the manuals.
47 ft/lbs is the correct spec.
TSB (technical Service Bulletin) will soon follow.
