since i don't have a torque wrench and i am hesitating at installing it myself (i know it's easy).... i probably won't have it done until my service visit after my BMW K1200GT arrives

of course there will be pictures

I don't think you'll need a TQ wrench for this application...

It's not bolting to anything of necessity, rather, only to the bolts that hold on the keygaurd, and to the handlebar bolts....should take you no time at all....

if i don't properly re-attach the handlebar bolts.... the handlebars could FALL OFF...... no?

that wouldn't be a good thing.... i guess

I don't think you need a torque wrench...I didn't use it. Just fasten nice and strong, with no special pressure. Can't wait to see those pictures
You'll see what a difference, I mean, the bike should come with it from factory. It's a "MUST".

C'mon, we want pics NOW! Get the thing installed and don't worry about torque wrench as you probably won't find values for this application anyway so you're guessing anyway. I've shipped my bike a couple times where I had to remove handlebars and just tightened them back. No problems in over a year of riding.

A torque wrench is used mostly to not overtighten and stretch bolts or strip threds. Use some blue locktite and don`t be a gorilla, you`ll be fine.
