850 Hub Bearing Torque..

My son asked me, when he had the wheels off of his '22 850 Ultimate Trail Sportsman to mount up a set of new CAMSO tracks, what the torque values should be on the hub bearing nuts as he was adding some grease to his hub bearings - and off the top of my head (DUH) I told him 110ft/lbs. for some reason thinking that was what I recalled reading at some point.
Now, it hit me last night - and got me wondering where I got that number from..
I have gone back this AM to see if I was right or wrong and have noted some references to it possibly being 80ft/lbs. instead!
I assume proper torque values are there for good reason and having 110 instead of 80 (if that is what it truly should be) would make a real difference and now the tracks (and hub nuts) should come off and get retorqued properly (big job.. which I should do - considering the poor information I passed along)..
But before I go through all of this - are the torque values for the axle hub nuts, front and rear, for a '22 850 Ultimate Trail 850 actually 80ft/lbs.?
Thanks for any input - he hasn't driven it very far so far - which is probably a good thing all considered - so if the nuts are too tight I would assume (you know how that works) nothing should have been screwed up so far..
Thanks - Randy

I have a Sportsman XP 1000 and has the same bearings and 80 ft lb of torque is what the book has but go to 100 with no problem because I know any slack can cause wear and even have the hub to break.

I believe my manual called for 100ft/lbs.

I have been running 80ft/lbs on both my alloys and camso tracks.

I strongly suggest being careful to tighten them evenly and in stages.

Good advice on the torque procedure.
This is how I said to tighten lug nut if you don't want to break them.
