I was lubing up the shift linkage last night, I've been doing a lot of miscellaneous maintenance while I'm waiting to get my seat back from Russell, and I noticed the I only had one stud mounting the exhaust to the front cylinder.
Does anyone know the size of that stud? Torque values? Any reason beside gaulding that I couldn't use a bolt vs stud and nut?
Also while I've got it stripped down should I swap the plugs out? I've already changed all the fluids except coolant... any other maintenance items I should hit on ???
It's and 04' with 18,000 miles.
As always thanks for any input... and keep it in the wind...

Now I'm getting scared with thanks to that great similar threads at the bottom of the page! I didn't lay on my back to see if the stud may have snapped off... if it has let the fun and games begin!
I still need tourque values... strange problem and seems to appear mostly on the front cylinder... spooky !!!

While in that area, also check the studs/bolts holding the exhaust pipe to the frame. I had a few of them work loose over time.
