Verholen Bar Risers - Torque?

Hi,
I searched the forum and did not see mention of the torque specs for the Verholen risers. They were not included with the directions. Does anyone have experience with the torque values? This for 08 K1200GT.
Thanks,
J

P.S. - Get well soon Ken!!!

Re: Verholen Bar Risers - Torque?

I installed them on my 2009 K1300GT and I didn't use a torque wrench. I tightened the bolts and periodically check them. I haven't had to re-tighten them.

Re: Verholen Bar Risers - Torque?

The RepRom Service Manual gives the torque for the handlebar adjustment screws as 20 Nm. The various bar risers would also use a similar torque.

Or you could do the same as the other posters here and just go with that standard German fallback: "Gutentite" (good-and-tight).

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Verholen Bar Risers - Torque?

Thanks everyone I appreciate the advice. Gutentite - I like that!!! I guess it will take me a while to get up to speed on the German way of handling maintenance.

Oh no, the Germans are very particular, and will follow torque specs and procedures to the letter (or number, I guess).

It's just the rest of us that have been trained in the fine art of Güdenüf.

The printed instructions that came with my Suburban Machinery bar risers specify 20 Nm (15-16 foot-pounds) of torque. They are very similar to your Verholen risers.
