Engine mount bolt torque specs?


I recently installed Givi bars on my VX3, and I had some trouble figuring out the torque setting the upper engine mount bolt should be tightened to. There seems to be a different spec for the nut side vs the bolt side. I could only find the nut side in my service manual but found numbers online for the bolt side. I wound up tightening the bolt side, and I tightened to 33 ft-lbs based on an online copy of the manual that seemed different from mine (?). I also read a thread on this forum where 32-34 was suggested as the right torque setting, but I can't seem to confirm that anywhere else. Is 33 right or should it be 52 like my manual says?


I of course had to attach two pictures of the Grey Ghost looking rugged with its new accessories.
