it should be torqued to what ever the manual states. and no.... it wasn't tight, or you would not have had this problem. I am not trying to be a , but reality is, if you don't know what you are doing, then don't. your mistake could have killed you.

Best way to prevent future issues is to know what condition the bike is in. Preventative maintenance and early warnings create a safer and better performing ride.

get it up to Motorcycles Unlimited and have them look over the entire thing. i did this with my last cbr and it gave me all kinds of confidence in the bike :thumbs:

i've got a better idea. how about you learn the proper way to do stuff and have lots of years motorcycling instead of "half-assing" things and having a short time at it.

Yamaha manual states it's a bendable locking washer.

It's never good thing to be unsure about working on a vehicle of any type. Take this as an example of how important torquing down to proper specs is and just be happy no matter what the damage is that you didn't get hurt. If it hasn't been stressed enough, it's a good thing it didn't bind the chain causing it to lock up.

If turning your own wrench is fun for you I'd suggest maybe taking a course to learn the in's and out's of motorcycles. It will help save money in the long run and give you the knowledge to at the least know what involved the next trip to service department.
