HELP! torque specs front and rear axles

Sorry if I've missed this somewhere. Did a search but couldn't find it. Can't find my shop manual either, so I'm stuck with "seems tight" for now.

Can anyone provide me with the torque specs for the following?

rear axle nut

front axle

front axle pinch bolts

front brake caliper mount bolts

It's a nice day and I want to go riding. Just got new tires mounted and back on the bike, but am stuck without my shop manual.

Thanks in advance.

This information is from the DL650/A service manual for years '05-'08.

Rear Axle Nut 72.5 lb/ft
Front Axle 47 lb/ft
Pinch Bolt 16.5 lb/ft
Caliper Mounting Bolts 28 lb/ft

I hope this helps.

All seem a little on the strong side but only the rear axle spec has caused many problems. Stainless on stainless likes to gall or cold pressure weld. I like to use anti seize and a reduction in torque to make up for the lubrication effect to 55-60lb-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
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

I agree, and I think I saw where most others agree that >70 on the rear is too much.

The front isn't as big a deal, 'cuz of the pinch bolt that holds the axle bolt.

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
