    Re: torque settings

    About 40-44nm.

    Best thing to do is buy a haynes manual for your bike as it lists lots of useful information like this.

    Edit: Reading again I hope you mean the variator nut...?

    It's only a small nut. The torque settings I gave are correct as I thought you were talking about the bit you were talking about!

    It's the starter bendix. It's supposed to be pushed in yeah.
