raven-9....don't go 17 ft/lbs on the 6mm cylinder head/cam cover bolts, this value is for the 8mm center bolt. The 6mm bolts will strip easily, I've been wrenching XR engines since '84, I stay with 5-6 ft/lbs on these bolts (book says 7), same with the side cover bolts, no problems. Cylinder head bolts are 26 ft/lbs. To obtain proper torque readings, the threads must be in good condition, clean and free of debris and corrosion. The threads should be lubricated in order to get accurate torque readings, I use anti-sieze to inhibit corrosion between the steel bolts and the aluminum component threads.
