Sorry I dropped off the radar for a bit.

I'm still looking for a 23mm swingarm locknut tool to borrow.

If all else fails, next weekend I'll try to make myself one.

Ride 250 miles round trip to buy a replacement starter.
Put it in by feel instead of torque spec, assuming my problem was I put a u joint between my torque wrench and the bolt.
See on internet a way to fit the torque wrench in without a u joint, and decide to try it again.
Break adjuster slider...

Dude???? . Hate it when that happens......

I am going to throw this out there for any and all interested. I would not call my self a Master Motorcycle Technician. But I am a "professional" mechanic that has been practicing my craft for 25 years. And I have an engineering degree. If anybody needs help with anything. Give me a shout. I am more than happy to help in anyway I can.

There are many instances where you can throw OEM torque specs out the window. OE's like to err on the side of caution that something will not fall out. But many times this also means that putting a mild steal bolt into thin or aluminum components is over stressing things.

Cheers Ken

Have you checked out the ADV Hall of Wisdom? Lot's of good tech write ups for the 1150GS.

Check out the oilhead maintenance manual by Carl Kudlow

When you factor in their cars, BMW torque specs have frequently steered me wrong and Mercedes never has. Though, I don't think it's that the MB specs are any lower, it's that the MB hardware is much better quality (it is REALLY nice hardware).
