Put on some cobra slashdowns and love them... but tightened the acorn nuts to my version of tight. No leaks, everythings cool,until I read the shop manual (after the fact) and it says to only tighten to 17 ft/lbs.... I'm sure mine are tighter than that! So, this is my question, will having the acorns nuts too tight f**k anything up, should I get new crush gaskets and start over or just leave it alone?

Nay, I tightened mine down pretty good too... also have two crush washers on there.. one on there by accident of course... ;) I just wouldn't go too much further if I were you & check it again in a week for leaks. :)

Hey thanks RSS,
Didn't think it would be a big thing, but thought I'd check it out with everyone on the forum. Huge knowledge base...might as well use it!
Thanks again

Although I have two torque wrench sitting in my tool chest I never pull them out for use unless I was involved with the torque down a cylinder head or another critical component that it was absolutely crucial toward torque ft lbs.

Old School Torque Chart
!0 ft lbs = 1 short grunt
20 ft lbs = 2 short grunt
30 ft lbs = 3 long grunts

For 30 to 100 lbs
Pipe bar required for leverage
Oh shit is it going to snap
Looks good to me

Bob, What can I say I can't help myself always be a parts junkie, I see something cool I buy it then figure out what the hell I'm going to do with it.
Figure you might be the guy with the personality... the guy who dies with the most stuff wins... you're doing a good job BTW... ;)

Brand new Demon air filter, put it on and took a photo and took it off put it back in the box on the shelf. It does look pretty cool looking and I think I posted a photo of it somewhere. it it will make a nice addition to someones bike for $100 if they want it. Never fall in love with something that can't love you back!!
