Torque Spec for Front Brakes - 2010 Ninja 250

Hi Guys,

I just picked up a 2010 Ninja 250. It needs new brake pads in the front, but I don't know the torque spec for the pins or the caliper bolts. Can anyone tell me that offhand, or direct me to a spot where torque values are listed?

Thanks,

Jim Moore

there's table here: https://faq.ninja250.org/torque/ex250j/
Hmm, no torque-spec for pad-holder shafts.
Nothing in manual either. They don’t actually have much load, so 10-15 lb*ft should be sufficient.
Also be sure to use blue Loctite on those threads.

Wouldn't blue loctite be wasted with the heat of the brakes causing it to break down?

The 300 has a torque spec of 12.7 ft-lbs for the pins.

Would still hold in place since there's no turning torque on those pins. Even on race-bike, brake-caliper won't get too hot for too long (at least if you're going fast). Replacement pins come with blue threadlocker pre-applied to threads. Vibration can back it out due to such low torque for that size fastener. Avoid temptation to use more torque to hold it in as that will cause you issues when trying to remove later... damn $@)#&*! POs

I've always had trouble with those damn pins! I've always sprayed copper antiseize on em to help with the pin removal later.

I rounded out the hole for the allen wrench on that pin once and had a lovely time trying to extract the pin. After that it was anti seize all the way
