No banter or argument..torque specs are derived from engineering calculations, period. For Joe Blow off the street to challenge the accuracy of a torque spec is fuk'n ludicrous no matter how many times you think you've done something "correctly"... Question: What is the correct torque value for any bolt on your motorcycle? Correct answer: As per manufacture specification or instruction.. I would go on with the incorrect answer, but that's already been covered.
