 I've just bought some replacement bolts from Fastec Racing. 5 Oilway bungs are included. Any chance you know what the torque settings should be for the bungs???

Off the top of my head - no. But if you go to the Downloads section (look along the bar at the top of the screen - the same one with the logout option there) within that go into manuals and then choose the workshop manual to download. All torque information for all bolts required is in that manual (you'll need to be logged in to see the downloads)

(must admit - never been asked for the oil bungs torque before, still, always a first time!)

Great! Thank you! I made a copy of your list and put it on the wall of my garage.

There is an issue with the torque setting for the rear sprocket nuts in the workshop manual which has been causing some grief.

6-32 Table item B: "102 N.m (10.2 kgf.m, 74.0 lb-ft)"
6-38 "Rear sprocket nut: 102 N.m (10.2 kgf.m, 74.0 lb-ft)"
8-35 Table last item: "Rear sprocket nut: 102 N.m (10.2 kgf.m, 74.0 lb-ft)"

2-25 Table last item (position 24) "Rear sprocket nut: 60 N.m (6.0 kgf.m, 43.5 lb-ft)

Various calls by members of a german forum (gsx-1400-forum.de) to "Suzuki" confirmed the info in 2-25. An experienced mechanic on the forum referred to a DIN-Norm Table for threaded steel bolts in aluminum which confirmed the 60 N.m.

Do secure with threadlock even though the service manual does not specify it. I use "LiquiMoly Medium Strength".
