    Default vtx 1300 Shop manual

    ive been reading through the shop manual and honda missed something important. the forget to mention the torque value for the cam holder cap bolts. i have a 2003-2007 manual if you have a different manual can you check page 8-21 to see if the torque value is listed

    thanks

    You skipped right past it.... Check that bearing surface for clearance! 8-7 of 03-04 svc manual

    i did catch the torque setting you posted but that is for checking bearing clearance. is it the same for actual torque during use

    Yes! The actual operating condition torque values are required to correctly determine
    bearing clearance.
    03-04 SM 1-10 has a torque chart, general fasteners on the left side, specialized fasteners on the right.
    The torque values should all be on a chart on the first few pages, not just a few for the fasteners used in that chapter/section.

    Ive got the 03-07 manual and dont see a value other than the 9 lbf-ft during the plastigauge bit. Exploded view on pg 8-2 doesnt even have it (nor is it in the values on the next page under the chart) Making a guess of it, and only a guess, it would seem the torque used to measure oil clearance would be the torque value for normal operation.
