GS500 Wiki - Torque Settings

Torque Settings

These settings apply to the GS500 model years 1989 - 1999. It is likely that later model years use the same values in most cases, but it is strongly recommended that this be verified with a valid shop manual.

NOTE: with all torque settings, it is best to work to the middle of the specified range. For example, if the spec states 50 Nm - 80 Nm, use the midpoint of 65 Nm. If your torque wrench is out of tolerance, the torque applied has a better chance of being correct.
