2005 American ironhorse texas chopper rear axle nut torque?

Would anyone happen to have a service manual for a 2005 American ironhorse texas chopper? It would be a huge help.

Not sure of the size axle. Bought the bike recently, and ended up with a nail in the rear tire. Bought a new tire, and i was going to have a shop change it out for me. I wanted to do the work myself...taking off, and putting back on the bike, but i cant find a service manual anywhere.

How would you determine the torque spec by axle size, and how would you go about measuring the axle to figure what the torque should be....I've never done it that way. Fortunately ive had a service manual on everything I've owned in the past, and just went by the book.

A Harley Softail service manual will help you out with a lot of stuff on your bike. Most rear axles are 65 ft lbs but the 25mm FLH style is 105 ft lbs. I'm not sure what setup is on your bike but if it looks like a standard Harley axle you torque it to 60 ft lbs and see where you clip or cotter pin lands, then tighten the nut till the clip or cotter pin can be installed, just don't go past 65 ft lbs.
