Cf800 wheel nuts
« on: October 19, 2015, 08:37:02 am »
Hi everyone,
New to this forum and posted a question under the cf800 column, no replies to date so asking another question under this section about the cf moto cforce 800.
The two manuals that i downloaded from nl 800 states two different torque settings for the wheel nuts. One states 55nm and the other states 70-80nm torque can anyone clear this up for me as my vehicle is arriving in a crate and the wheels will need attaching.

Thanks
Steve.

Generally ATV and UTV lug nuts are torqued somewhere between 40 and 60 Ftlbs so what ever is closest to that on the nm chart go with.

Thanks or the re-ply, i will go with owners manual which states 40-50, maybe the service manual which would be service agents are over protecting themselves by a higher torque setting.

With the centering lugs, the thin CFMoto aluminum wheels can't take much more then 60ft/lbs nor can the studs so keep it less. My Brute Force calls for 58ft/lbs so I use that on the Z8 as well but I think next time I will set them to 55.

55 NM = 40.5 FOOT POUNDS, 75NM= 55 FOOT POUNDS  so to that end i will tighten now to the service chart.
Just cannot understand why the difference on the same model, maybe an over site from the cfmoto group.

Thanks again.

Hi there generally M10 bolts should be tightend by max 55NM and M12 bolts to about 114NM. I usually tighten my cforce 550 EPS EFi  Which has M10 bolts to 60NM and my car has M12 and I torque it to 120NM. :-) this is because sometimes there might be some dust or dirt inside the nuts or bolt's thread or may be som rust Which gives it a bit more friction and which makes the torque meter clicks before the bolts reaches their maximum torque rate. This is just my opinion :-)
