Why torque to lower specs than factory? Just curious.

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

I better go tell the local AFM tuners and riders that they should change their settings then. Really, of all the critical fasteners on a bike, axle nuts and pinch bolts are among the last things I'd ever want to second-guess manufacturer's torque settings on. But, whatever.
PS: I think you mean "less compression." Tension is an extension force directed along the length of an object. Think of hanging a weight from the end of a string.

Good call, 'cause I'm 100% certain Honda engineers sit around all day, drinking sake, and chucking darts at a board when they need a torque setting.
