Yes it does change the leverage and so the torque but by what amount I don't know. I never used a torque wrench on things like that but always had a good feel for how tight a bolt needs to be. I think it's blasphemy to use an SAE bolt on a metric machine. Don't know why the accessory makers can't go metric.

Bright lights, protective gear and paying attention saves lives. Loud pipes just annoy the people behind you.
