I bought a 2015 KLR with 3800 Miles and was reading about idler balancer adjustment. I also have a Clymer Manual so I checked the torque specs which was 78 inch lbs. I should have trusted my gut when it barely took 2 fingers with a socket wrench to undo it, but I used a torque wrench and there was the beginning to the story.
The freakin torque wrench did not work properly and I broke the Bolt. Oil leak everywhere!!!
I emptied the oil and opened the L side case. I could see broken piece inside the secondary cover through the flywheel gears. I did not attempt to pry it out fearing that I might make it worst or gouge the tread or case. ( later after the parts came in from eagle mike I realized if I had another Idler Bolt and didnt want the doohickey upgraded, I could have pried it with a punch as IT WAS EASY TO TURN without removing anymore parts!!!!)
Still waiting on the idler bolt from 2wheel pros(☹️
Thank you guys specially those that make videos on you tube on tips and procedures.
