I would suspect the wrench setting or the torque value in the manual, (the WR's have a history of torque confusion don't they).

But what you say makes sense now I think about it. There is always going to be oil present on the threads.

What was the range on the Craftsman torque wrench? You lose accuracy when you're at the very bottom or very top of the scale. They read most accurately in the middle of the scale. BTW, that's not a slam at Craftsman, I just used one to reassemble my cam tower.

Hopefully the frame's OK on my 03 WR!

just did one on a 426, honestly I'd never do this again unless you suspect a major failure. it had never been done on this bike just was getting oil changes and filter changes. that screen only catches big stuff and if there's anything in it IF your bike is still running it would probably sound like you're shaking a box of rocks because there's something getting really torn up.
my point being is that there's not much thread there and it's sort of hard to get at, recipe for disaster and since the bits it strains would be so big you'd either of noticed a major failure or you'd see tons of smaller crap in the fine filter.
