Hey guys,
I just picked up my first RC51 on Friday and I noticed that there is a little sticker on the bottom on my forks and on the swing arm. The one on the fork says "22 N-m" and the swing arm "127 N-m". I assume it has to do with the suspension setup on the bike but I can't figure out exactly what it means. Any ideas? Thanks.
(sorry for the sideways pic)

Ill wait for someone 100% certain to agree, but I would assume those are torque specs someone labeled on the bike for convenience.

Someone has placed labels of the metric torque specs on the front axle pinch bolts and rear axle nut.

22 N/m = 16 Ft/Lbs
127 N/m = 93 Ft/Lbs

Nope torque specs for the pinch bolt...22 N-m is 22 Newton meters which equates to 16.2263673 foot pounds.
This isn't exactly clear, only pretty clear :D

I've been a motorcycle tech for over 18 years...I told you they were torque specs. :D
Except the part where your first word is Nope...

yeah, but you're a nobody :D

That's a good idea, I need to start doing that.
Funny and ironic, that crossed my mind too :D

Thanks for clarifying Jondog...I keep forgetting that I can't point and explain, it's the interweb! I will be more precise next time.
