    Hi folks,

    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!

    Cheers..

    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 unaffected

    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…

    Just tighten a bit less than too tight

    Up til it shears and back it off 1/4 turn 😉

    I do mine just by feel. Just use a bit of common sense

    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?

    Loctite is always available from your local, friendly, Halfords…. or free from my work when it’s going out of date 🙂
