R1150GS valve cover bolt

Post by keng on Sun Apr 03, 2016 12:50 pm

My friend Martinz over torqued his valve cover bolt and snapped it. Just wondering if anyone has a spare they could sell or loan Martin to get him back on the road. If so, give him a heads up at martinz@fbcd.ca.

Wondering if one could have been sourced locally or was it a specialty bolt,?
Answered my own question: It is a specialty bolt looking at the parts fiche at http://www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com/fiche/DiagramsMain.aspx?vid=51759&rnd=07012015

Martin has learned a bolt rated for 70 in-lbs shouldn't be torqued to 170 in-lbs:-) Time to get glasses lol
