I bought the Probolt M22 x 1.00mm open yoke nut (Aluminum Flanged Top Yoke Nut M22x(1.00mm) (Open)) to be able to use on my fork stem so I can mount the quad lock.

Question is, from what I understand its supposed to be tightened to 85ft-lbs what would you recommend using to torque it down?

Would a 30mm 6 point 1/2 drive socket work? And would that bolt be able to withstand that torque force do you think? Or would you just use a wrench to tighten the hell out of it by hand and not worry about it?

You sure about the 85-ft/lbs? On my 07, its 38ft/lbs to seat things, then back off, and tighten to 13ft/lbs. In any event, that bolt is aluminum, so its threads will be very soft. No way it won't strip before reaching 85ft/lbs; not sure if it'll take 38ft/lbs.

Should be 81ft/lbs, had no issues installing on mine and no visible marks from tightening.

I think they may have changed the config of the nuts around a bit from the MT to the R7 based on the service manual. The lower ring nut now takes care of the bearing preload.

I think you're right about the change, but the 81ft/lbs seems terribly high; I mean, the same as the drive sprocket nut? With the lower ring nut doing all the work, I would think the steering stem nut would call for maybe 20ft/lbs. But I guess not...
