Default "She" bolts

2007 883

Getting ready to reassemble it

I get the torque procedure. And LIGHTLY oiling the She Bolts.

Do you also put a tidge of oil where the bolt heads contact the heads?

That's what Hammer Performance recommends, and I did that on my recent 1250 upgrade. I also bought new head bolts, but that's not required. Mine were just severely rusted from 30 years beach life.

Lubing the underside of the head of the bolt gives a truer torque reading, so they say.
