I'd call for a group hug, but, oil and kumbyah don't mix.

Certainly not beyond the Generation 1 specification of 17 ft-lb. Even then, given the accuracy and precision of torque wrenches within KLRistas' budgets, I'd suggest . . . "finger tight," plus maybe 1/4 turn, with washer installed.

WHY should this torque be handled gingerly?

BECAUSE, over-tightening of the steel plug can strip the threads of the soft aluminum case halves.

THEN, you will have to endure my, "sermon," on using oversize oil drain plugs in this instance!

Yep, I use Eaglemike's recommended 15 ft lbs. 17 as per some manuals is probably OK, 21 as in some later manuals is too much IMO.

Sure. Make sure that credit goes, not to me, but to the originators. All I did was put it into a .pdf and update it a bit for the Gen 2.
