Hi,

I've just removed the non drive side crank arm on my fsa slk bb30 crank set. When loosening the crank arm using a 10mm Allen key, there was an initial loosening followed by a tightening and then second loosening, followed by crank arm removal. I understand this is due to the self extracting bolt mechanism.

My question is when I reinstall the crank arm using a torque wrench will the opposite occur, I.e. Tightening followed by a 'loosening' then a final tightening or will it just be a straight forward one-time tightening to the recommended torque?

Thanks

It tightens normally, like any other bolt.

Awesome, so just grab the torque wrench and tighten to recommended torque. I can handle that :)
