tighten both front and rear axle nuts to 70 ft-lbs

I was installing my front and rear wheels today and I didnt know the torque spec by heart and I put both nuts on to 70... I figured that since most cars at 80 - 100

so putting a 70 on motorcycle seemed right

now I searched and it said 58 for front

should I untighten it half a turn ? or is it ok to leave them at 70 ?

Wheel bearings are not designed for excessive side loads.

Do it right. Loosen and retorque to correct specs.

Why does this guy keep posting stupid questions? If u tightened it too much then loosen it, if u can't be bothered loosening it then don't ask!

Front axle = 58
Rear axle = 83

Also there is a specific order for tightening the front axle and pinch bolts and seating the axle.
You really need to get yourself a service manual so you know you are putting things back together correctly

Buy a service manual and a proper torque wrench. 90 percent of the questions I have about my bike can be answered in the service manual.
I would check the front bearings and re install the axle to the proper torque setting. I would not use thread lock on the axle. I might use it on the pinch bolts, but that is it.
