Engine mounting bolt torque

Can anybody tell me what the torque settings are for the left and right engine mounting bolts ? I want to check the mounting tabs for spacing on my 09. Thanks, Mark

Not too bad. One standard thickness 3/8" flat washer on the left side, two real thin 3/8" washers on the right. This done with the bike in the upright position. (off the side stand)

So the spacing is a problem on the 09's? Haven't checked mine but was thinking of adding the Happy Trails guard, would be the perfect time to check it.
Thanks!

The right side motor mount tab on the frame was altered on late 2007+ models. My 2007 made in September 2006 has the original one. I'm not sure if the left side was altered, but late 2007's and up also reported the same front engine mounts' spacing gaps.

I had an engine mounting bolt kicking around from my 02 ZRX. It is about 1/4" longer than the Versys bolt so I used it on the left. Will get a 10 by 100mm grade 8 for the right side to give me a little more length. OEM is 95mm. It worked but barely sticks through the nut.
