What happened to torque down the axle, pinch bolt, handlebars, fender bolts, and everything else he used an impact gun on. The manufacturer puts torque values on fasteners for a reason. Wouldn’t want him working on my bike.

PS: Thanks as always Tripp for posting the videos.

Hmm, watching that guy assemble a motorcycle with an impact wrench. 🙄 Now I understand why they want you to bring the bike back for a first inspection and tightening of bolts, after that nutty way of putting it together. Can you buy a new bike in the crate, so you can put it together yourself?

That's a really good question. Years ago it was common to do that. I think today it might void your warranty or go against their insurance policy. Bleh.

Hmmm, nope. Don't want that bike. And if I decide to buy one, I'll ask the dealer to guarantee the bolts are torqued.
