Question Need some torque specs please...

Can anyone give me the torque specs for these 4 frame bolts? I also need the specs for the corresponding bolts on the left side. Let's call em 5,6,7 & 8 going left to right when facing the left side of the bike.

Thanks

16.5lb-ft. The manual says 25.5lb-ft but that is for 10mm shank bolts and wrong for 8mm shank bolts and a number of people have stripped threads trying it.

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

I had come across the 25Lb and thankfully I was torquing down the Givi supplied bolts yesterday and I only sheared off the top of the bolt. One time I was glad to get weak mounting hardware.

All the torque values are posted up on our Wiki for future reference...

How much stuff is lifted directly from VSRI? I hope you're giving credit.
