GLEE Torque spec for ROD, REAR CUSHION 62641-06G00?

Title says it all. They're also knows as dog bones. Is there a website that lists torque specs for a 2012 DL650a? Thanks!

See How much torque should I use on the bolts?

Specifically, the cushion lever rod (Suzuki's name for the 62641-06G00 dog bone link) nut torque is 56.5lb-ft.

I believe the generic chart would put it at 36lb-ft if I'm not mistaken about the size so It could be another of the suspect high torque values. If it is a 10mm shank bolt, I wouldn't go higher than 40lb-ft.

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

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at
