    polaris manual and clymer manual torque values do not agree..

    I probably not the first to notice, but the torque values listed in my clymer manual for a 1996 slt700 domestic engine are considerable higher than the polaris manual I am looking at online, thanks to this website. I am about to put the cases together tomorrow morning, and the factory manual shows the 8mm and 10 mm case bolts at 22 and 28 ft pounds, while clymer shows the same bolts at 30 and 38 ft pounds (but at 22 and 28 N*m, which i assume is a metric rating.)

    In fact, all of clymers torque values are higher than the factroy manual-anyone know what is going on?

    This was covered before.

    I suspect that Clymers got the Metric to US torque conversions backwards.

    No kidding, that would not be the first mistake, with the clymer values about 25% too high...I saw another one on early honda goldwing motorcycles where they had two carb jets reversed, causing lots of problems. Guess I will go with the factory manual posted here, i wish i could get it to print!

    upon further investigation, it looks like clymer took the ft lbs value from the factory manual as N*m values, and then converted those N*m values to ft lbs,

    for example the 8 mm crankcase bolts shown at 22 ft lbs in factory manual, well 22 N*m converts to 30 ft lbs shown in clymer if I am converting correctly, and every torque value on the engine (according to clymer, p125 table 3 1996 to 1998 Polaris) is the same way!!!

    Polaris service manual has some some of print protection on the file, it just will not make itself available to print as though the file itself is print protected-old issue that has been discussed before, but if you have a workaround I would love to hear it, we are on new Macs but I dont think that is the issue.
