Default Spindle nut - other names?

Is it the "swing arm pivot nut" the haynes manual is talking about? I am trying to find the torque thingy to tighten it right since the chain got loose again after i tightened it and uncle grav says i have to use a torque wrench, so at great expense i've bought one, but no i don't know what to set it at!

Or alternatively it doesnt help when they tell you the settings are in a different frigging chapter to the one they actually are!!!!!

Grav does it have a self locking nut?

It won't be self locking.or i doubt it.
Just look for "Foot Pounds or Newton Metres"

That will be the setting on your wrench you need to dial in.
It will click when you reach the setting if it is the usual type.

Splendid. It's good to see a woman who knows what to do with the big tool in her hands.

Most Torque Wrenchs should not be used to undo, nor should they be used to tighten something beyond their current setting. This can impair their accuracy. Make sure the threads are clean and check your manual to see if the threads they are meant to be torqued Dry or Lubed as this will change the end tension, generally if nothing is stated they should be clean and dry.
Good on you for trying to do it yourself

torque wrenches shouldn`t be used as makeshift hammers, they go boiiing and have to be binned. just speaking from personal experience

well the one on the triumph is 146Nm or around 102ft/lbs ........ but that is a 46mm nut

as a guide for spindles of a similar size
A CB900 wheel spindle nuts are torqued to
front - 40-47 lbf/lb
rear - 58-72 lbf/lb

so a 3/8" drive torque wrench in the 5-55 lbf/ft range will be more than enough for motorcycle applications

though haynes lists standard torque values as;
5mm bolt or nut - 3.5-4.5 lbf/ft
6mm bolt or nut - 6-9 lbf/ft
8mm bolt or nut - 13-18 lbf/ft
10mm bolt or nut - 22-29 lbf/ft
12mm bolt or nut - 36-43 lbf/ft

5mm screw - 2.5-3.5 lbf/ft
6mm screw - 5-8 lbf/ft
6mm flange bolt - 7-10 lbf/ft
8mm flange bolt - 17-22 lbf/ft
10mm flange bolt - 22-29 lbf/ft

but for a cheap but effective heavy duty torque wrench try Screwfix Torque range 20-150lb/ft. 28-210Nm

Oh yes, indeed it can, but it can also stand alone and mean a multitude of things.
