Is it significant to use exact torque when fastening the front sprocket? I replaced front sprocket on my 6r, but didn’t have the torque wrench, so I just locket it with 10 inch adjustable wrench, and it appears to be fine. The cap on top of the sprocket nest is holding it in place, so it can’t escape anyway, but I’m not too sure about the significance of how tight it should be. I rode several hundreds miles on it, but still have paranoia about it.
Will appreciate your expert replies

should get into the habit of torquing to specific specs. if you over tighten u run into the possibility of snapping bolts etc. and if u under tighten then i think you can guess.

Dude, buy a cheap torgue wrench. You can get them for $10-$20. If you can afford a good one go for it, you should never regret buying tools. If you ever need it again you should have a quality tool the rest of your life.
