I've searched but cannot find the torque setting for the fill and drain plugs on my final drive.

Can anyone advise please.

Ditto to Dave Garry. Just nip up but not too tight though!

Thanks guys.

The filler plug has an 'O' ring so not so critical.

It was the drain I was more concerned about especially as it's into Japanese aluminium. 

16.5 ft lbs will do for me

As someone said the other day when asking a similar question on the Velocette Facebook page, 'When your ears burn that'll be too tight'!!!
