Question Gas cap torque

OK I did the search, but no info. I got a tank bag for my 58th birthday present.
So it has a ring that mounts to the bolts that hold that gas cap ring. I can't find torque specs for those bolts anywhere. I would hate to strip them. The shop manual doesn't have any advice that I can find. So anyhbody have any idea how much to torque those to?

I wouldn't loose to much sleep over torque specs on this. Just snug it up real good with a 4mm hex.

According to the Bags Connections installation instructions on the Twisted Throttle website the correct torque is 4.5 Nm.

Thanks. There wasn't any details in the instructions from Cortech.
