#18 is the "swing arm pivot shaft"

It's torque spec is 72.5 ft lbs.

Now, my point of confusion is this. There is a pinch-bolt in place presumably to secure #18. Am i supposed to loosen the pinch-bolt then torque #18....OR....torque #18 without paying any attention to the pinch-bolt.

See the pic...

To remove the swing arm pivot shaft you would need to loosen the pinch bolt first, therefore you ned to have it loose as well when tigtening to proper torque, then tighten the pinch bolt so the swing arm pivot shaft and swingarm become one unit.

Kinda what I was thinking. Thing is, the manual makes no mention of the pinch-bolt nor it's torque spec, unless it's somewhere else in the manual. Any idea as to it's torque spec?
