Dude, get someone to help you. Try to tag along/help and observe other people working on their bike to get some experience. Right now it appears that you should not be left alone with your bike and a torque wrench... lol

We all started somewhere, give the kid a break. I thought that I needed to torque my oil drain bolt at one point, but luckily I have Rod now to teach me everything he knows. If you don't get the chance to be around mechanics or mechanical things, we have to learn somehow. And after his last experience, now he's being ultra careful.

Zen13, youtube will be your best friend. Search there first for questions, then come back here to cofirm. But yeah, you don't need to torque the bolt, tighten enough so that it stays but not so much that you are using all of your strength.

Alright....I just stick to the manual. Maybe it's not necessary for you EXPERIENCED guys, but I need it.

Yes, I'm a stupid NOOB. But everyone is start from NOOB. Laughing at me just like laughing at the one you used to be. I don't care.

To be honest, I'm an international student here and nobody around me has a motorbike. What I can do is learn from manual, webs and myself.
