    Assume you are referring to the trans pulley nut? Two torque procedures for that nut.

    1. 100 ft.lbs
    2. 35 ft.lbs initial torque and then another 35*-45* for final torque.

    I like #2 but your ride; you decide.:D

    Appreciate the reply .I should have been more clear ..I was referring to the mainshaft nut that holds the clutch hub on ...I found the spec on night rider ...80#s ..correct?........I hope that is correct.

    Noworries; actually your terminology was correct; the "clutch hub main shaft nut" torque is 70#-80#. The larger trans pulley nut, to be technically correct, is the "transmission sprocket nut"; my bad.:D
