    Before tightening the front axle, load and unload your forks like in braking action. Tip I got from my suspension guru.
    TLs 1997 Black, Dymag wheels, Ohlins rear, Hyperpro spring, Ohlins R/T FG 43 fork, Ohlins SD 146 steering damper, Braking waves front and rear, K&N, Yoshimura Titanium bolt ons, PCII (needs some setup) http://photobucket.com/tlh

    *ahem* (although to be fair I pump the forks after tightening the axle but before doing the pinch bolts. Tip from the Suzuki manual hehe

    Whichever order you do it in though, it definitely needs doing. I've heard of people getting nasty vibrations through the front which has been cured by doing this.

    There certainly is an argument for that. I usually go a few Nm under the specified torque setting on greased threads (probably should've mentioned that, sorry ) if the torque setting feels 'high' for the size and length of bolt I'm torquing.

    As for leaving them dry though, maybe I would if I lived in California Not in the UK though. Our Summer is three days long, max. And it usually rains

    Nice one Sam - I actually put this to use this very evening!
    Like you say, when tightening the nut, the chain was tensioning; your timing was perfect having read this only a few hrs previously!
    So followed your tip & flipped it. Simple but totally effective - now as you tighten the nut it stops against the adjusters.
    Awesome!

    Hats off to you for putting the time and effort into doing such a detailed "How To" post. Feel free to do a few more from the basic to the hard ones. E.g. changing brake pads, TB synch, bleeding brakes, changing bearings, etc.
