Header Torque for 2015 650

Does anyone know what the header bolt torque is for the 2015 650? I just got a Delkevic 8" exhaust and not much in the way of instructions. Good looking stuff though.

Thanks!

Are you using new gaskets?

Well, it came with two brass colored metal rings. No instructions. I don't know what the gaskets look like. I will look them up to make sure.

Thanks!

The two brass colored hollow metal rings are your header gaskets, so you're all set.

Well, it looks like those copper rings are the gaskets.

Just checked my '15 SERVICE MANUAL. It says 13 ft/lbs for header nuts, and 15 ft/lbs for muffler bolts and nuts.

Invader's answer of 12 is 'close-enough' for MOST torque wrenches.
