OEM crash bars

I bought a set of used OEM crash bars but they came with no instructions. Are they any specific torque values that i need to use or anything like. Thanks

Dont have the instructions with me at the moment, but as I remember, yes...there are torque specs for the bolts that thread into the motor housing. Also, check them again after a hundred miles or two, as mine seemed to have worked themselves out somewhat...which caused (more than normal) vibration at the handlebars.
