I'm assembling my R 24 and it's going pretty well, what I can't find is the torque value for the transmission output shaft coupler nut, I also need to replace the driveshaft seal which requires removing one of the ends off the driveshaft. I cannot find any information on this procedure, either end looks pressed on, can anybody clear this up? I also need to know if the front forks are assembled dry. There are 4 fiber type bushings and I would think they should be greased but not sure. Thanks

This nut was used on several models r24-r69s up until 1967

I cant see any oil drain or grease fittings

I have the same rubber gaiter

I have the same rubber gaiter at the bottom of my R25/2 forks. My riders manual says to put 150-170cc of engine oil into the hole under the cap at the top of the fork. I don't remember doing that, but do remember loosening the top clamp to the rubber boot and carefully pouring oil into it. I think what led me to do that was the only way to drain the forks was to loosen the bottom clamp and let the oil out. I figured...what the heck...just put oil in on the top. According to the riders manual, oil is added either at the top or past the clamps of the boot.

Can't say if that's the same for the R24. But the diagram shown by Tommy is for the R24 - R25/3.

Tommy

The Barrington service manual states the torque value for the r51/3 flange nut should be 87 foot pounds
