New Pike? I've heard that they are shipped with not nearly enough oil compared to spec.
This is true of most forks sadly . You'd think spending 1k would at least get you a properly assembled fork , but it doesn't.

100% bet that assembly of the fork doesn't include soaking foam rings. 5-7ml of oil will easily suck into the foam rings if they're dry.

if you really want a specific torque, it is just force X the perpendicular distance.
Grab you scale, measure from the center of the ring to where you hook the scale on the wrench in meters,
pull at a right angle until the "weight" x distance = what you want. (you can make the distance a whole number - that helps))

Wait - hey @shrpshtr325 - can we use a scale for force? ie we measure in kg? it knows that it is working with gravity to get mass.
but we need a newton, not kgf - put the scale in pounds and do that 4.45 newton conversion?

:burp: (yes, 1 beer)

Or, and I maybe going out on a limb here, just get a torque wrench.

I cleaned my drivetrain after my second ride this weekend. Normally I inspect after every ride, but failed to do so yesterday. Anyway, found this on my XTR cassette, went ahead and ordered an XT replacement. I've never seen anything like this before, wondering if I shouldn't make a warranty defect claim?

It may be worth the try at your local shop to see if they'll put in the claim for you but I wouldn't expect to get anything though.

Probably. XTR falls under a 3-year warranty. As long as you (read: your shop) are confident that it wasn't abused into that state, they will 100% warranty that.
