GIGAS...:hail ...u were right m8...i remembered i still had an haynes manual for my bandit 1200..checked that..says 23nm..for banjo and 10nm for oil cooler unions...so 23 seems right then...went to garage and nipped to 23nm...will see if that cures it..if not some new crush washers will be fitted when i do oil & filter change in the next week or so..once again cheers m8
I just snugged mine up a bit by hand. You want just enough tq to squash the crush washers a bit, but no more than really necessary imho. I put mine together at 4k miles - bike has 50.5k miles now and they haven't had any issues thus far
