Swing Arm Spools 2017 CBR 1000RR

Bought some swing arm spools for my 17 CBR1000RR, are they supposed to be torque or thread lock?

Thread lock them and screw in snug/tight. Donít go over board

You can put lock tight on them. As mentioned earlier, donít over torque them.

Is there even a torque spec for these spools?

Pretty sure Honda wouldn't have a spec for them and the spool manufacturer probably wouldn't either as they'll probably fit several different models of bikes.

You could probably use a general spec for the size of the bolt. I know @RC45 has posted some of these before and they should be generally available. Personally, I use a T-handle hex tool and tighten them nearly as tight as I can get them with that tool.

The strength of the 3rd party spool bolts are so varied, some are quality US, Japanese or Italian pieces, others cheap eBay Chinese junk with bolts made of cheese - the recommendation is to blue Loctite them in.

General torque spec recommendations would be based on the size of the bolt. 8mm & 10mm flange bolts might be anything from 16lbft - 20lbft & 25lbft - 29lbft.

But so many unknowns about the bolt quality blue loctite is probably easier and safer.

The spools are pit bull, the ones who make the motorcycle stands.

I ran pitbull spools before, they are pretty good. Good luck.
