If you click on the File tab you can download it in .pdf, or other formats. I couldn't make it a .jpg since I did it in google docs.

Okay, I just downloaded it as a PDF. That works. Thanks again!

Anybody have a recommendation for a good torque wrench they've used/use?

I have one from Tekton. Got it from Amazon and works pretty well. Got it for around $38

You can spend a pretty hefty amount on a torque wrench. I have heard the Harbor Freight are not to bad. Biggest thing is to take care of it. Don't let it fall on the floor.

I found my torque wrenches on eBay.

The only click type torque wrenches that you can trust have to be very good quality and can be expensive.
I have had 2 Craftsman beam type ones (1/4" and 3/8") for over 30 years.
I tested them once and the errors were less than 5%. That's good enough for the girls I dance with. :D

I have a Matco 3/8", and Mac 1/4" and 1/2". I picked them all up on eBay. 1/4" is what you want for inch/lbs. A torque wrench gives the most accurate reading when it is in the middle of it's range. So, while I could do 10 ft/lb with my 3/8" wrench, I always use my 1/4" because 10 ft/lbs falls more in the middle of the 1/4" range. It is on the bottom of the range for the 3/8".

I do have to admit though, I am a tool snob. I prefer the higher end tools when I can get them. If I didn't have a choice though, I would pick up a harbor freight 1/4" if I absolutely needed a torque wrench and couldn't find one for a decent price. Like I said, I have heard they can be pretty accurate for what they are.

This is a search for used torque wrenches on eBay

Thanks I will check Craftsman again. Price isn't an issue -- just that my 20 minute online search gave me nothing but larger ft-lb models.

I made this cheat sheet of the bolts I most encounter during general and emergency maintenance when working on my bike for race weekends, track days, and general maintenance.

If there is something you think is missing I can add it to the sheet. I keep a copy taped up in my tool box so I don't have to refer to the service manual all the time.

Best to print it up in landscape mode.

I have been getting a couple of requests to have edit access to the torque sheet. If there is something that needs updating or adding please post here and I will add it.

If an admin would like access just dm me and then request edit access after I have your email via dm.
