    Says 98 Nm... but that’s dry. If you lube it with treadlocker you may need correction factors applied. Pictures I posted are from manual.

    Oh well now the plot coagulates I am afraid.
    Checked bearings for damage after finding the rear wheel stiff to rotate when torqued up and found disc side notchy so new ordered.
    Decided to fit old standard wheel as bearings known to be okay.
    Once torqued in place also too stiff to rotate even with caliper removed.
    Now getting concerned about swing arm itself
    As the wheel turns freely at 75Nm once increased beyond 80Nm starts to stiffen and by 90Nm cant really be turned by one hand.
    Hoover can I pop round and take some measurements from your swing arm sometime?
    Or does anyone know where the data showing distance between arms at the spindle can be found?
    Cheers

    Roll axle shaft on the proper flat surface, see if it is bent.

    Yes that was one of the things I checked.
    We are lucky here to have some fantastic people.
    Al (Wild) is lending me a known straight swingarm to fit and try so I don't have to pay to have mine diagnosed.
    All parts that fit on the spindle seem ok so this is worth a look.

    Got home from work and picking up the swingarm generously loaned by Al at 5.30 and 2hours later I have a wheel in and torqued up to 98Nm and even allowing for the drag of rear brakes and his chain being old and dry the difference is very noticeable.
    So now got to find someone with a motoliner jig and compare repair cost with persuading Al to sell this one and the cost of another visit to powder coasters.
    Once again huge shout out thanks to Al for the generous loan.
    Cheers
