Chevyguy --- Terminology can be confusing. Who is the publisher of your service manual? "Engine sprocket
" is pretty vague. To my knowledge (and I follow this subject closely), Suzuki changed the torque on the crankshaft primary drive
gear nut, (that would be the right hand side of the crankshaft gear that transmits power to the clutch), from 80 ft lb to 100 ft lb.
The nut that holds the drive sprocket to the transmission output shaft, commonly known as the counter shaft and countershaft sprocket, (the sprocket that transmits power to the rear wheel
by chain) is 80 ft lb. It could have been upgraded to 100 but I would like to see that in a Suzuki tech manual.
"Primary drive gear is definitely not the generator rotor. The generator rotor, or flywheel, torque is 70 ft lb. The primary drive gear nut as explained in the first paragraph is 100 ft lb.
Some motors such as Harley Davisdson actually have a primary drive "Engine Sprocket" and it is on the engine crankshaft (transmits power from the crankshaft to the clutch by chain). And a final drive sprocket that transmits power from the transmission to the rear wheel (on HD by belt)
Run-Forest ---- Loctite
(correct spelling) thread locker is a brand name of the Henkel corporation. Several other brand names of thread lockers including Permatex
are in use. As far as I know, they are equal to the Loctite
brand perhaps licensed by Loctite. The Permatex
brands seem to be the common brand in auto parts stores and the Loctite brand common in industrial applications.
