HH clamp bolts on top triple clamp............M8............20Nm
HH clamp bolts on bottom triple clamp.......M8............15Nm
As you can see, those are M8 bolts. I have the same bolts, on the cast triples, on my 300...and their torque values are 17 and 12Nm, respectively. 20Nm is not really that tight for them. I think those M8 bolts can go as high as 25-30Nm's.
I spent all my money on motorcycles, 4X4's, whiskey, and women...The rest I just wasted. (edited to fit/original phrase by "WIBO")
