Torque Spec Reference for Honda CRF450X

Ok, so here’s a little list of torque specifications we put together for the Honda CRF450X just for reference. I figured in time people will lose their manuals and have a tough time finding this info, so let’s put it on the net for all to see. All of these are in lbs-ft and are directly from the 2005 CRF450X Honda Owner’s Manual & Competition Handbook provided to new bike purchasers.
