Torque number for these bolts?

Do any of you have a service manual that indicates the torque of these 2 bolts? I am installing my crash bars, and will need to re-torque them on re-assembly.

On the right side, there are 2 bolts, and I need to remove the forward bolt (right side of pic) and ol the left side, near the kick stand mount, I need to remove the top, forward bolt (top left side of pic).

Also, I assume blue loctite would be required? Or, should I use anti-sieze? (I have both on hand)

If anyone with a service manual could help me out, I would appreciate it.

Yes, Loctite required
I have it as 55Nm for those M10 x 45 Torx bolts:
See what you think.

Yes, that is exactly what I needed. Bolt #3 on each side. I agree that we are reading it correctly. I wonder why they number the bolts, but don't reference the number? Anyway... Thanks for the doc image. Very helpful.

Thanks again for the help. My engine guards are now installed. Blue loctite on those frame bolts. 55nm (40-41 lbs). Also have the B6 and CANsmart installed. Had to do some repair on my upper ferrings. Next is mounting the DR1 lights on the bars, and then putting all the panels back on.

Re: Torque number for these bolts?

Don't remember -- did you buy the under mirror mounts for the DR1's? If so, you may want to file a slot in the fairings for the wiring to pass through. This allows the fairing panels to lay smooth over the bike, and may reduce the pressure on those fragile clips.n

No. I did not want them there. They would be too close to the signal lights, and would wash them out. Plus, the high beams and halos are up there too. I wanted them lower, for the triangle of light.

I mounted them on my crash bars using the Denali bar mounts. The U bracket is down and forward, to stay below the bar, but out in front of the left valve cover, which is further forward than the right.

I still need to tighten, aim, finish cable ties, adjust the CANbus settings, and re-assemble. I have attached one photo of the left light on the bar, so you can see what I am talking about.

I also have the B6 tail light working.

I did another post today, showing how the previous owner repaired the broken clips, with metal ones. The fix works... I had no idea they were broken until I removed the panels.

I have mine programmed to go out when the signals are active. I also have programmed them to flash when activating the horn (Denali Mini-SoundBomb). Someday I may add the smallest Denali lights on the lower forks to get that tall/narrow triangle of light. I like the way the high-mounted lights light up the road without the wheel blocking part of the light pattern.

There's always another way to install something, to make it more "yours".

I ran the other 2 cables to the front for the horn and 2nd set of lights. The ends are capped off and zip tied out of the way, for now. Easier to run all wiring whilst I had it dismantled.

Again, I really like the Denali Elevtronics system.
