Torque values

I am reassembling the back end of an '06 DL650. I needed to apply a torch to the mounting brackets for the starboard passenger pegs. They weren't straight anymore. How bout a torque value for the four main mounting bolts for that rear subframe? I will be using some blue LocTite. I need to break down and buy a shop manual but thought I would try this post thing.
(First-timer, ya think?)
thanks, y'all.

Dam it. I was fooled by the resurrected thread for a minute. I thought Janice was back.

Yah, we miss some of the folk!
But if someone googles 'torque settings' hopefully this will pop up and make them happy!

Care to elaborate? The figures in the first post align with those in the linked thread.

Grey Wolf suggested the 72 ftlb was too high. Better at 56 or something like that.

The lower number was suggested/recommended along with using antii-sieze on the axle threads.

This is what I remember as well.

Yep, Greywolf recommended 58 ft lb and anti-seize on the rear axle nut. Anti-seize to prevent galling and 58 due to the use of a lubricant (anti-seize) which lowers the 72 setting to 80% or 58, if I remember correctly.

Been using both since '06.
