Oil pan bolt torque value

Despite flipping through my manual for a while now I cant seem to find the torque values for the oil pan bolts.


Anyone have a better eye / memory than me for finding that info? I've got an oil leak down there somewhere and I just wanted to check the easy things first without worrying I might overtorque something.

No stated TQ that I know of or can find.. so that then circles back to standard tq values by fastener size

Thanks for the quick response. I guess my old 79 CB750 book has me spoiled. It has torque values for EVERYTHING. lol


Anyway, heres to hoping this is a quick fix. Ive got oil leaking from SOMEWHERE, apparently on both sides, but nothing up high and nothing obvious.

Search for oil drain bolt in the manual

Viola..



Make sure it has a copper sealing washer. If it hasn't and it's been overtightened it could cause the sump around the hole to crack.

Perfect, except the question was "Oil pan bolt torque value".. not the drain plug.
