I just got my bike back from the shop today. I was one of the lucky ones. The torque wrench clicked at 50 foot pounds twice then let loose. He took the flywheel off, inspected the woodruff key and lapped the keyway just for good measure. Re torque at 47 foot pounds and all is good at this time. I hope? OBTW I'm told they can't get a part # for the cover gasket yet so hopefully your gaskets will stay in good shape as mine did and can be reused. If anybody else finds a part # post it for all.

I just picked up a WR450 yesterday, and they had two in the showroom, ser # 6XX and 13XX. The dealer had already checked the torque and the service manual had a corrections page in it. :)
