    So I'm taking it the header exhaust flange nut is the for mounting the headers...are they really only mounted at 14ft lbs? That just seems low to me...

    I have the service manual I just don't see anything for the headers in there. Would it be called something different?

    Edit: I'm guessing Exhaust Pipe Nut in the service manual is them since it has a quantity of 8...and it is indeed 14ft lbs...

    yes where the headers mount to the exhaust ports..... 14 ft lbs is tight enough because there are exhaust gaskets there.

    couple mine were loose.... so good to check them with a 3/8 drive tq wrench if you have one.

    I am using the PDF copy of the factory service manual that has been around since 2009. It calls for 57 Ft. Lbs torque on the rear sprocket nuts. That sounds too high, and when I try to tighten them to that value it feels too tight. Anyone know of an updated spec.?

    Now: 2015 FZ6R & 2008 WR250R
    Past: 2009 FZ6R & 2008 CBR1000RR
