Does anybody know the torque settings for the rear axle bolts on the Monster 695? I don't have the 695 manual, so if anyone can share the info I'd appreciate it. :)

Don't have what you're looking for...

Just wanted to say WELCOME to DNW!

I'm sure one of our members will come up with the proper torque settings you are looking for. :)

Welcome! I don't have a 695, but you can downloaded the 2007 695 Owners Manual from www.ducati.com/en/bikes/service/manuals/2007.jhtml?family=manuals.

Here's the stuff I believe your looking for:

Tensioning the drive chain
Turn the rear wheel slowly to find the position at which
the chain is at its most taut.
With the motorcycle resting on its sidestand, push the
chain with your finger in correspondence with the mid
point if the swingarm The lower run of the chain should
deflect by approximately 25 to 27 mm (fig. 43).
To adjust the tension. Loosen the axle nut (1, fig. 44) and
screw in the adjuster screws (2) on both sides of the
swingarm by the same amount to tighten the chain or
unscrew them to slacken it. In the latter case, you will
need to push the wheel forward.
Important
An incorrectly tensioned chain will lead to accelerated
wear of the transmission components.
Check that the reference marks on both sides of the
swingarm are lined up. This indicates perfect wheel
alignment.
Grease the thread of the axle nut (1) with SHELL
Retinax HDX2 and tighten to a torque of 72 Nm.
Grease the threads of the adjuster screws (2) with
SHELL Alvania R3 an tighten to a torque of 8 Nm.

Hope this helps.

That's exactly what I was looking for, Rich. I've installed a 14T front sprocket and didn't have the torque specs for the axle. I'd been told it was 62, but I'm glad I double checked. Didn't realize I had the info in the manual all the time! Thanks again for the info, and thanks for the welcome. :)
