- Refit RP23 to Five
Just got my shock back from Mojo and just wondered if there are any specific torque settings etc. for tightening it all back up when I drop it back into my Five? Just worried about overtightening and affecting the bushes.
Any help / advice welcome!

There probably are torque specs, don’t think Orange have ever bothered with them though. You are only tightening onto the reducers, so the bushes are unaffectedPosted 6 years ago
Ta, I should have checked their website first though – according to their FAQ it looks like 10Nm with Loctite threadlock for good measure. Needless to say I don’t have any…Posted 6 years ago
Just tighten a bit less than too tightPosted 6 years ago
Up til it shears and back it off 1/4 turn 😉Posted 6 years ago
I do mine just by feel. Just use a bit of common sensePosted 6 years ago
Some sage advice there – feel bad enough asking because it’s a Five and worse still it had BMX-style 26″ wheels.. 😉
Now where to find some Loctite threadlock over the counter..! Definitely needed?Posted 6 years ago
Ive greased the threads on mine. 3 years no issuesPosted 6 years ago
Loctite is always available from your local, friendly, Halfords…. or free from my work when it’s going out of date 🙂Posted 6 years ago
