2011 R1200RT - I am finally finishing up the final drive oil change that caused me problems before. I also lubed the splines so pulled the swingarm bolt to drop the final drive. I have now replaced the nut and washer with new ones (as recommended someplace I cannot find.) I can recall a recommendation for red loctite but cannot find the torque value again.

If your referring to the Paralever mounting bolt, my Haynes manual has it listed at 42Nm for both front and rear.

Thank you. I just found that also in Haynes. Nothing I saw actually called it that. Much easier to find if you know what it is.

Button it up and get on the road.
