    Service manual doesn't have torque specs

    The service manual for my 98 GP1200 doesn't show the torque specs for the intake manifold bolts. Does anyone know the torque. I used 70 inch pound (5.9 foot pounds) with medium lock tite. Does this sound right? Seems to light.

    Thanks

    those are small bolts going into aluminum,does not require a lot of torque,that torque 6.5 foot pounds is straight from yamaha.

    Thanks for the help. Its funny that the manual says to use locktite but it doesn't look like they used any at the factory.

    normally on yamaha there locktite looks pinkish,and most of the time when you remove a bolt that had it,you can barely tell it was on there.
