Torque specs for front axle

Does anybody have the torque values for the front axle and brake calipers? Is anti seize a good idea on the axle threads, or clean and dry?

There is no stainless on stainless so clean and dry is fine. Anti seize would be okay on the axle if the torque was reduced to about 80% of spec. and the pinch bolt would keep the axle from loosening anyway. If anything, I would put blue Loctite on the caliper bolts.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

In case anyone stumbles upon this thread, I don’t think that axle spec. is right. Better double check.
