Sato Clip Ons

Anyone know the proper torque specs for the Sato clip ons? Looks to be (Qty 2) 5mm bolts that hold the hinged C-shaped parts together. I am converting the RC-Tuono back into an RC51, so I can take it to the track, and these came with the bike, but no instructions.

Thanks!

Be gentle and even with the tension on both bolts in small increments as you tighten. The hinged clamp is a good design with a really bad rap because people gorilla the bolts way past what it takes to keep them firmly in place.

I have those on my bike, fyi the bolts on mine use a M5 allen but are M6 bolts. I have them at 10nm or about 88 inch pounds. Use a good quality torque wrench and do it in stages as per LDH. Those are no longer available so be careful.
