What is the proper torque value of the 8mm bolt that connects the engine support bracket to the frame. This is for a 2017 model, but should be the same for any year? I've seen both 16.5 and 25.5lb.ft.

https://www.stromtrooper.com/v-strom-service-maintenance-questions-discussions/278841-torque-specs-2014-dl2-1000-a.html Again from the late greywolf, "Torque specs are pretty much based on bolt size. If you aren't doing anything that you need to buy a service manual for, the generic chart is fine. Measure the shank diameter for bolt size.

4mm-1.5 lb-ft
5mm-3.0 lb-ft
6mm-7.0 lb-ft
8mm-16.5 lb-ft
10mm-36 lb-ft"
