Default Re: Replacing studs on engine help!

Buy a torque wrench and use it. Over tightening and breaking fasteners is one of the most common issues with any kit. You have to understand that the fasteners are small, the biggest being head bolts at 8mm. Treat them kindly.

Ignore the advice to "tighten" them after or before every ride. Check them, but if they're tight, leave them alone.
