bolt torque specs for KLR 650

...(I'm groveling here)...could one of you fine gentlemen or gentleladies provide me with the torque specs I need for when I R&R my '03 KLR 650's front disc brake...I'm upgrading to a Brembo 320mm disc, SS lines, and Galper black pads...doing the rear SS lines, too (I know...overkill, but I want it anyway)...I need the torque specs for the disc bolts and the caliper bolts... I thank you in advance...(groveling over)

I've got the service manuals--at home, not here at the office--and I'll look it up. IIRC, they're not real tight; little bolts into soft alloy, y'know.

Galfer Black, really? Usually the front gets greens, but I reckon that's for stainless rotors--is your Brembo cast iron? I know the blacks are recco'd for the rear; mine will be soon.

Stainless lines for the rear "overkill"? As spongy as the rear gets in hot weather, you won't hear me criticize ya. Now, that stock front brake is kinda weak, but it will still overpower my tire. I've found it very controllable in iffy traction situations.

Make sure the M/C piston-to-caliper piston ratio is in the sweet zone. See the table at http://www.vintagebrake.com . But you've already done that anyway.

Wait a minute. There's parts book for the KLR online somewhere, and I think it shows torque specs...well, who the hell knows where that bookmark went. Google it, buddy. See ya later if the hurricane don't drown us.

...thanks, Stephen...yeah, the brake dude at LagunaSeca said that the black pads are a good match with the 320mm brembo rotors (its the same combo on his own KLR650)...I'll search google...if I don't find it, I'll look for you info here...cool link!...thanks again!...
