    FZR intake grate install??

    Hi,
    I just bought the R&D intake grate for my FZR and am about to install it. But I am unsure what setting to torque the intake grate bolts to.
    Thanks.

    Riva's grate is 40nm (29ft lbs) It also says to use Blue Loc-tite. I would imagine R&D grate is the same.

    RIVA instructions, I would assume R&D should be the same torque

    Thanks guys, I have installed the grate as per the instructions.

    I was also wondering if any gain would be acheived from sealing the ride plate to the hull?

    Thanks.

    I think You should use Loctite.. this is to prevent bolts to get loose.. never heard that silicone does that ..
