I don't know the actual specs but just get it good and snug with a little blue loctite and then keep an eye on it for a few rides. It should be fine.

Based on the diagram I would agree with polman500. Just snug it gently with 1/4 drive and some blue loctite on the threads. Standard torque values are as shown below. As you can see when you get down to the small bolts they don't require much and you would need a fairly sensitive in/lbs(NM) torque wrench to torque at such a low setting. the number after the bolt size is the thread size (coarse or fine).

Bolt size:

#10/24 - 27 inch/lbs.
#10/32 - 31 inch/lbs.

1/4"/20 - 5 foot/lbs.
1/4"/28 - 6 foot/lbs.
5/16"/18 - 11 foot/lbs.
5/16"/24 - 12 foot/lbs.
3/8" /16 - 20 foot/lbs.
3/8"/24 - 23 foot/lbs.

sorry I seemed snappy, I figured it was a bigger deal than it was, I put it in today. easier than I thought. just used the alan key that fit and snugged it down good, no super human strength stuff. I will keep an eye on it, if it seems like it gets loose Loctite I will use

No prob...you just wanted to get it fixed....but did you save 15% on your car insurance by switching to GEICO? LOL
