I'm about to re-install my rebuilt Ohlins front and rear shocks on my 2000 K1200LT. I can't seem to find my service manual and have searched for the mounting torque settings without luck so far. Does anyone happen to know the mounting torques for the front and rear shock nuts and bolts? I'd love to have them.

Much obliged.

Looks like those two Loctite products aren't made anymore. Any suggestions for replacements or should I just stay with same colors? According to the Loctite web site the current green is supposed to be applied after the fastener is tightened.
