I wasn't being mean. Not using a tq wrench properly can be more damaging than no tq wrench being used. It really isn't necessary. Just don't get crazy on it. It's a steel bolt and and aluminum threads on the pan

I use a torque wrench on almost every fastener on my bike. There's wrong with wanting to do it right.

you dont really need a torque wretch to tighten up the drain plug, but make sure you replace the crushable washer.
otherwise it might still leak or come loose even with tightening the drain plug to the maf spec.

It's your bike Bro. take care of it like you want to. Discount tire uses torque wrenches to change a tire, just because I don't doesn't mean I'll bash them when they change my tires and use one. So many internet bad looking to jump on anyone for anything.

We may joke around on here but for the most part there is always someone willing to help. We just don't want to see you destroy your bike on something simple. If I had a torque wrench I would use it but since I don't I hand tighten everything, it just takes time to learn about bikes.
