My bike manual says 17Nm, which isn't too tight to begin with, but today I didn't have my filter wrench with me.
I handtightened the filter on...its on there pretty good, but probably not to 17Nm. If I had to guess, maybe 10?
I have heard some people only ever hand tighten it. And that as long as its snug (which it is) then its ok.
Is this going to be a problem?
Do I need to remove my cowling again and retorque it to the specified 17Nm? Obviously I don't want the filter vibrating loose and dumping oil.
