My Kawasaki 1989 KLR 650 Tengai Service manual says: "If any oil is deposited on the threads of the bolt, finally tighten it to 175 N-m (18.0 kg-m, 130 ft-lb)". I suppose "130 ft-lbs wet" comes from that

Tom,

I didn't personally check but someone else did and he said the Gen1 and Clymer indicated wet torque (not sure of the exact wording) and the 6th and 11th edition of the Gen2 manual showed dry. I'd check myself but all my manuals are currently in storage awaiting my new shop finishing.

Thanks, @motofcalco.

I'm trying to get ready for a week-long trip right now but I will have to dig into that when I get back. I have to admit that I have never looked for info on the process in the Tengai manual. I'll go find that manual (I think it is in the Shed of Horrors or up in the rafters of the Shop of Horrors) when I get back.

There is a box of early manuals that is put away that I'll have to go check. What I have at hand is the -58 manual which is the later Gen 1. Maybe in a week or so.

But this is interesting!

Well, to me at least...

I might have to write a story. A shocking exposť!
