Question Torque Specs

I want to change both tires on my KLR 650 but I do not have a manual to look up the torque specs for the bolts and nuts that have to be loosened and re-torqued when I put it back together. Can anyone help with the specs?
Thanks
Bill

Thanks for the quick reply. Could you give me the torque specs for the front caliper bolts mounting and the front axle pinch bolts?

If you have an inch pound torque wrench, 12 inch pounds equal one foot pound. It would be 216 "INCH POUNDS"

Talking Torque Specs

Thanks for the quick help. I have enough information to proceed changing the tires. Has anyone posted a complete torque spec sheet for a KLR 650? If not I could post the torque specs that have been provided me and add to the spec sheet as I have more torque specs.

Don't want to sound like a smartass, but the Clymer manual is great and it's not too expensive. It's on Amazon for $33 w/free shipping. Got mine for less from Motorbooks, but they're not showing it now.

No offense taken. You are right the Clymer is a good tool. I was hoping to get some help (and did get some great help) and not have to buy one just now.

Not only that, it's kinda hard to order a book with a wrench in one hand and a wheel in another.
