Actually, I mis-spoke there. It's adequate preload you need and lube
insures that X torque = Y preload. Preload is what holds bolted
together, not torque. Torque is the means to get the preload.

Go fast. Take chances.

Well, it's a specialized tool, but not so specialized that it won't
work on just about any bike out there.

Before I had this tool, I would fold some copper & jam it between the
gears. The gear jammer from Motion Pro is very slick. It has a
magnet to help hold it in place.
