  1. Ciao Guest, ALERT FOR Store purchases - riding season is here, so we know everyone wants it yesterday. However, lead times are long and many things are sold out or back-ordered, and there isn't much we can do to rush anything. Always best to buy off Season when things are in stock. Also, there are many seasonal holidays this time of year, both here and in Europe (particularly the Italian August Holiday month), so please be patient! We aren't Amazon. We do our best to get things out as quickly as possible, and we also aren't in control of things like customs & weather delays, etc. Please note GuzziTech and the GTM Store is largely a ONE man operation. Requests for phone calls will be deleted. We are online only. Orders are currently being shipped once or twice a week. You can always sign into the online Store system to check the status. Please refrain if at all possible about emailing for an update; If you must ask for order info, please reply on the actual order email. You will get shipping info when it goes out via our online Store system (check your Spam folder), and if you want to cancel your order, please notify us direct email (do not post or use the Forum) and allow 7-10 business days for a reply BEFORE OR JUST disputing the charge. We don't want your money if we can't deliver. Special order items are subject to a 15-20% cancellation fee. Thanks for your understanding and support.

Where are the torque specs?

    I'm putting new tires on my Cali 1400 and unable to find the torque specs for the front brake calipers to the fork and the fork pinch bolt for the axle. I went thru the manual three times and only located the axle torque.
    Thanks in advance.

    I looked for those a while back when replacing front tire, couldn't find them in any Guzzi manual. They are pretty big bolts, so you'd have to be quite clumsy to strip the threads on them. I followed the rule of thumb of putting a socket (no wrench) on the end and do them up as tight as I can by hand and then rotate them no more than 45 degrees with a wrench. You can feel them tighten significantly during that twist. Don't use any anti seize as this will affect the torque and make it easier to strip the thread

    Thank you for the replies. I used a guide I found on the internet. I thought that maybe I skipped a few pages when I downloaded and printed the manual.

    Fall back rules for torque specs, simply google up torque specs for bolts by size and material. Charts available for all size bolts and nuts right there. Old school shops had these charts on the wall.

    I think they are in the manual, just not easy to locate

    From the manual ....

    50 Nm (36.88 lb ft) for the calipers

    6 Nm (4.42 lb ft) for the pinch bolts (my guess).
