Does anyone have or know where I can get a list of the torque values for the 2010 + 1200RT ?

I have searched and found a list from a 05 GS,but nothing any newer or specific for the RT.

I ran that for my bike (a 2006).

The 2010 should be the same. I do know that the rear end fluid was changed to 180 ml because of seal problems.

Have you been able to find a decent low range torque wrench that does not cost a fortune?

I would guess that the torque values that were the subject of the original question are the same from 2007 to the current model. The original poster should be aware that at least a few things have changed. 20w-50 is no longer on the stated spec for oil (I don't intend to get into an oil discussion!) and the final drive fill has been revised to .18 liter.

I noted the final drive. What is the new spec oil? I have enough 20w50 for one more oil change.

The new spec oil is 15w/50
BMW Motorrad High Performance oil, SAE 15W-50, API SJ / JASO MA2
P/N 83 21 2 213 684

This does not mean you must use 15w/50.
I have a 2012 purchased in Florida. The dealer told me to use 20w/50.
He recommended Castrol.
Many use the 20w/50. Should not be a problem. It is your choice.

I figured it out.
The info provided is great; however, I am also interested in getting a similar list for the camheads just in case there have been adjustments to torque specifications. Did you get this from the BMW maintenance/repair DVD?

Anyone have more recent data? Let me check with the dealer to see if I can have them provide. If I can get a copy I will share it.

Thanks.

Watch out for the silencer clamp bolt torque value if you are using the list for the older bikes.

Looks like it's gone from 55Nm on the 2005+ bikes down to 28Nm on the 2010+ ones

I put this crib sheet together to keep with my tool kit.

It's for a camhead.

Corrections and additions welcomed.

This is nice, Tom. Much more organized than the one I put together.

A couple of things I have on mine that I don't see on yours:

Valve clearances (cold): Intake 0.15 mm, exhaust 0.30 mm
Oil filter torque: 11 Nm
Brake disc allowable: front 4.0 mm, rear 4.5 mm

Also, on mine the silencer clamp torque specified by the factory I think is 55 nM, you show 28. Is there a difference for the camheads?

Best wishes.

JayJay -

I think my information is wrong on the silencer clamp.

The torque for the GS and R1200R is 28Nm.

For the R1200RT it should be 55Nm, as you have.

This is from the Haynes Manual.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Here is a similar list I put together.
It is for a R1200rt (440) I believe it covers the 2010 and up RT's.
Most values are probably similar on pre 2010 models.

The best torque wrench I found that covers all torque ranges needed is this one.

5-75 ftlbs. It will torque the valve covers up to a rear tire change. Best fit one size fits all.

Any chance someone can update this list with the torque specs for the wetheads?

This is for more general purposes and suitable for most instances...

Thanks Zippy. Is a consensus that the documented specs I have for my '08 are applicable?
