if you need to torque, (i.e. replacing existinf bearings with new ones), then add a 12" "cheater pipe" and use a fish scale to get the torque.. Lbs per Ft...
If you are just removing and greasing existing bearings, they do not require a "torque" on reassembly, just snug them back up and lock down..
Only time Torque is required, is on a "new bearing race/cup" install..
M/C delivers in 2 days or less.. deal with them all the time...
