I noticed today I have this bolt on the underside of the engine, right side of the bike, It has some kind of rubber washer and it's oily all around it.

Scrolled the entire shop manual and I cant figure out what that's for.

Any clue?

Oh god, you're right, it's a brass washer which made me realise it's a crankcase bolt. I gave it a twist to get it tighter earlier but now I'm thinking I better make sure it has the right torque of 32.5ft-lb

It's one of those bolts you don't want to mess with uh

Be aware most torque values are dry torque ( no lubricant) , wet torque is much lower, why do I caution you? Because several have stated Aluminum , once damaged very hard to fix, that includes using a heli-coil .
