Can anyone tell me the socket size for the Steering Nut on the 2006 FJR1300 (between the handlebars)? I know the caliper says 1 5/16" but I don't know the Metric size. I want to install a Techmount for my GPS and it replaces the existing Steering Nut. I would rather buy just one socket instead of a set.
Also the torque specs would be appreciated if you know them.
Thanks

Thump, the socket size for the stem nut is 36mm, torque to 85 f/lbs.

Wow! :shock:

That's a lot of torque on that nut. Is that called for in the manual? The torque on the actual steering stem (ring nut) is much less.

Thanks

Thanks for the info! Now I can save some bucks for riding.

That is alot of torque (85 ft lbs) but I found this same value on another site, so it must be correct.

Check the details.

The stem top nut O.D. changed sizes in '04 but the I.D. did not. The torques stayed the same. If this is still true for the '06, I can't say. Someone will have to cough up the dough for the '06 shop manual like the rest of us did for the previous models and then add to the knowledge base.

Yep, I tried to order the service book but Yamas site says it is on backorder. So, we will all have to wait for that I guess.

I used the torque spec on my 06 and it seems good. I'll let ya know if anything bad happens from this.
