I always resent being provided with too much clearly presented relevant information.

Bastards.

That's a normal American for you can you imagine what an abnormal American is like? lol

Wanna adopt me so I can move up north? But damn it's 61F and sunny in NC on Xmas Eve. Even better than Calif!

wow, throw me a bone you guys. this is my first venture into the euro way of things (besdies owning a audi for a year). I come from mainly riding Honda and Yamaha. the lingo bmw uses is alittle different and Im just having a hard time understanding it.

I was really just making a joke and thought some of you would understand my frustration but clearly you would rather just call me dumb and mock me.

anyway, still looking for the front sprocket #'s, probably looked at it a million times but didn't know that's what they were talking about.

See the reference right here on this very forum https://www.s1000rrforum.com/forum/ma...e-specs-2.html The front sprocket torque is 125 nM (or 92.2 ft-lb for the countries using the system that the rest of the world has abandoned).

Sorry to have a bit of a laugh at your expense - the rest of the world really has left America behind in this respect. The km. signs are still there in southern Arizona from back when Reagan tried to convert you guys, but it didn't work out. I had to smile at your comment about how the world should be on the same page. It is, except for the US of A. Sorry, had to say it.

Petulant whining rarely comes across as a joke - especially when coupled with a touch of ugly American.

It is remarkable how stubborn the U.S. has been when the rest of the world recognizes metric's superiority, and it is the language of science, medicine and engineering.

What is really odd is when an American product mixes the two, like my Z06. Nutty. Pick SAE or metric, not both.

Under the gearing section, it's weird. For the spec on ball joint to shift rod, it just says locknut, M6 and doesn't specify the length of the screw. What would be the length?

Sorry, I answered my own question
It's a locknut... No screw...

The torque spec guidance for the steering stem head bearings is odd. I have a rubber spacer in between both slotted nuts that deforms under anything higher than hand tight. Bike is a 12-14. Any special procedure for this? Right now I have the lower nut at 15NM and the top at hand tight.

That is correct. The bottom is 15nm and the top one is hand tight till it lines up. That's it.
