Workshop manual

Hi guys & girls

Have any of you got a workshop manual for my beloved F4R on pdf/adobe etc. I had one for my Benelli and found it very useful for general maintenance and would like to keep my new baby in fine fettle.

Thanks

Using the allen key nub thingie in your toolkit, loosen the two big rear-facing nuts on the rear wheel hub clamp. Use the weird hook-looking thing in your toolkit to spin the rear wheel eccentric hub bearing to adjust chain slack. Retighten clamp bolts. Factory spec torque is something really low like 30 Nm or something. DO NOT CRANK 'EM DOWN!

the spec for the pinch bolts is 28-30 Nm.

follow that one VERY closely. if you tighten down the pinch bolts too much, you can destroy the rear hub by putting too much pressure on the bearings. there are several documented failures from over-doing it on the pinch bolts.

btw, if you have new-ish bikes, there should be a nice yellow paint mark on the bolts. that mark is put on at the factory to let the QC people know that those bolts have been properly tightened. the cool thing is if that mark is still there, you can use it as a torque indicator. just retighten the bolt and lign the mark back up. make sure you keep track of how many times you rotate it...

For those of you who might not know!

Re adjusting the chain, don't forget to measure you ride height BEFORE adjusting your chain because during the adjustment you will affect this. Once the chain is adjusted adjust the ride height back to the pre chain adjustment setting.

To check you ride height, measure a fixed point on the swinging arm (say the hub nut or even the top of the paddock stand) to another fixed point on the subframe (I use the rivet on the silencer) and make a note of this measurement. Adjust the chain then remeasure from these points again, the measurement will be different. To adjust the ride height loosen the two allen pinch bolts on the ride height adjuster and adjust the ride height to the correct measurement via the nut in between the pinch bolts. Once the correct measurment is achieved retighten the pinchbolts and remeasure. If all ok job done.

Hope this helps
