Givi Crash Bar Install

Good day all! I'm still waiting on the arrival of my factory service manual; anyone have the torque spec for the upper front engine mount? It's an M10x160 pass through supplied to replace the original. Many thanks!

I hope not having a torque measuring wrench is not a problem..... installed mine and used the "very tight" manual measurement (+ some blue loctite) and called it the day.

Have probably 400 miles on it and everything looks fine. BTW used the same "method" on both mounts, the upper front and the lower back.

Roger that- thank you both! With the Givis it would have been hard to nail an accurate 51 ft lbs given how far the fasteners are recessed into the bars- I'm not a physicist but I play one on TV; all the extensions would throw the measurement off-"very tight/loctite" was the way to go!

Would like to see a photo, if you can. I have the T-Rex guards, which I like, but the Givi seemed like they would be more stylish.
