just ordered a new cylinder & piston/rings & gaskets for my bike today:)

anyone know the RS50's torque specifications for the 4 top end bolts (or a free online manual where i can find them)?.... and also is there a torque spec for the temperature sensor screw and the fuel screw (or just screw em in till there tight)?... thanks

under tech tips on the banner at the top of the forum there should be the torque specs in there.

I never needed a Haynes manual, workshop manuals are much better (do a search on the forum for them).
But tbh the RS50 is simple enough just to use common sense.

nope usualy its ft-lb on bigger engines like cars... but id think small engines like the rs50 theyed have it in in-lb cause i'll probaly have a hell of a time fitting a big ft-lb torque wrench into the rs's engine compartmet... i'll make it work though:)
