Rear set torque...220Nm are the correct torque?

The last week I went to change the rear tire of my 990R and warned my mecha with the 220-240Nm torque of the rear set. He was not sure that this torque is correct because is a very high torque and it is not common in a bike rear set. Anyway, he decided to call the MV Agusta official mechas to get sure about this issue...and the answer was amazing. The MV official mechas told him to tighten the rear set as a normal bike (with a normal wrench and using the power of hand). Even, they told him NOT TO TIGHTEN the rear set with a 220-240Nm torque because in that case, the bolt can get sticked to the rear hub and there is no way to loose it later.

What do you think, guys?

We've had several 'conversations' here on this subject. I don't see the need to go as high as 220 - 240 Nm, I torque mine to about 180. The circlip should stop the nut working loose in any case.

Yes, the circlip will save the situation in case of error...Now I have 110Nm torque in mine...and no problems at the moment.

I really think 110 is too low mate, that is half of the factory spec, I would not go lower than 180nm, which is what I do mine upto.

Surely the truth is in the manual. The mechanics should not tell you any different. What others do to their own bikes is up to them, but I doubt an official MV machanic will tell you different from what the factory says.
I torque mine to 200 and have had no problems. Frank

Until the circlip pops off and the wheels goes bye bye.

If you've got a proper torque wrench 220Nm is not that much. I can do it with one hand whilst the other hand is holding the 55mm tapered socket in place.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

How is that clip going to pop out of the inside of the wheel ? I hace seen a few blokes where the nut had turned and pinched the clip though.

unfortunately i did not make a picture of
my loose rear wheel nut with the twisted
and distorted circlip. but believe me it is
not a picture you want to see, especially if
you have just reached speeds up to 300 km/h
a few minutes ago.
