Default What are the torque specs for this

I have the .pdf of the Service Manual that someone on here posted, but I don't know what the part is called so I can't look in the torque listing to find it myself.

The bolts I need the specs for are the 4 bolts on the bottom of the forks which are facing forward. They pinch the bottom of the fork onto the axle. I see two different ones on the list that could be the ones I speak of. There is a front axle holder flange bolt which torques at 16 ft. lbs. and then there is a fork bottom bridge pinch flange bolt which torques at 29 ft. lbs. Which of these, if either, is the ones i'm talking about? If neither, then what is the correct name of them and torque for them. Thanks.

Nevermind. I searched through the manual a little deeper and found a diagram that also listed the torque specs. It's 16 ft. lbs. listed on that diagram.

If a mod wants to delete this thread then please do so. Sorry, guess I should have looked a little more before posting this.

Dont forget, it is not just the torque that is important on that, it is the procedure for order of tightening. tighten the larger side of the axle first, the one with the nut end on it, bounce the bike a bit... then tighten the other side, and check both again. This seats it properly.

Thanks for the info, never realized it had to be done a certain way. I looked it up in the repair manual and now I guess I will re-do it tomorrow.
