Axle retainer question
Hey all, just picked up a 06 vstar1100. I pulled the final drive and greased it up, all went well UNTIL I got to the rear axle retainer nuts. Now I wasn’t paying attention when I removed it, but should it be sitting flush? There is a small gap between the retainer and the frame. Also, if it is not supposed to be touching, what is the torque? I probably over did it. I went pretty tight.
Will this damage the threads or studs being over tightnened? I have found nothing on these bolts be it you tube or forums so I had to ask. I appreciate any input as I don’t want to be breaking this thing already.
