Many thx Barryworth, job was easier than I thought though seems a bit strange that the right hand pin is only to 48Nm and lockring is 100Nm, considering LH pin is 100Nm although noted the RH is a larger diameter . Almost impossible to get sufficient purchase on the lock ring teeth to get that high value but job done as best I can. Now onto next job to upgrade the rear shock spring! Cheers Steve.

I think that this is so there is the correct load on the bearings. If it were torqued up high it would be too much and the bearings would fail. One side is torqued high and the other sets the correct load. The lock ring is needed to stop them coming undone.
Upgrading the suspension is my next job also, so I hope you will let us know which route you are going to take.

If you want to discuss suspension, I'm happy to talk about the options.

Thx guys, I invested in a MCT refurb of the suspension a couple of years ago so just going for spring upgrades at mo. Already installed stiffer racetech linear springs up front to resolve nose dive and bottoming out offroad.  However front sits up higher now even with min preload and max on rear. Hence now upgrading the rear with hyperpro progressive spring though not my first choice but couldn't source a racetech rear at the time.
