OK all you mechanical wizards. In the next few weeks I am going to do the first service on my V7R and of course it asks to re-torque the heads. I know in order to properly torque heads you should loosten the bolts first and then torque them. Question is, do you loosen all of them and then torque in a cris-cross pattern or loosen them one at a time and re-torque. It seems a risk to loosen them all at the same time and possibly ruin a good head and base gasket seal but I just can't remember the best process for this.

Sorry, I am saving my pesos for this, unless it has sold already.

It's a little more expensive, but it is a lot closer!

Loosen one at a time and retorque to spec, then move on to the next one in sequence. Follow the specified criss-cross pattern.

Time to do my 850 Commando again. The fiber head gasket needs an annual retorquing or they blow out.

Do you really have to retorque the heads on a modern/new motorcycle?

I wouldn't think so, but if the factory service specs say to do so, then I guess I would go ahead and do it.

Those of us who run the "flame ring" head gaskets on our Nortons have to do it periodically as the gasket tends to compress and then the head bolts loosen and the gasket blows. But a Norton is most certainly not modern or new!

Got wood?

Found this in the forest yesterday. One of our trail clearing crew had some spare time and a sense of humor 15 years ago
