Anyone know what the torque settings should be for the rotor carrier bolts on the Forged Magnesium wheels?

Agreed. Had a customer pick up a set for his 999S and had our service department install them. They did a bit of research before installing them and heard they carefully torqued them stock settings.

Not sure, but maybe some blue loctite as well?

Interesting.....Hmmmmm?

I understand what you are saying- BUT.....-

The rotors on a stock ZX-10R Bolt DIRECTLY to the hub-

I can't see the torque value for a carrier being the same as for the rotor??? - Seeing as they are two different parts..

The Rotors bolt to the carriers on the Marchesini wheels- I could see those torque values being the same-but the carriers bolt into the wheel-unlike the stock....?

I'm still pretty sure you use the stock specs along with loctite (blue) and some anti-seize.

BST recommends stock torque settings for their wheels.... and they are Carbon Fiber.

I received the torque spec from Marchesini.
Thought I would just throw it up into this thread-answering my own question.
Hopefully it will help some poor sap down the road so they don't have to wait for answers like I did. :)

The M8 bolt (carriers) are 22 N-M*

The M6 Bolt (rotor) are 17 N-M*

*Newton Meters

converted to ft-lbs

22 N-M = 16.22lbs

17N-M = 12.54lbs
