Footpeg Mount Torque?

Anyone happen to know what this is for the -07 models? Loctite blue didn't stay tight, so I'm going to try red - but also make sure I've got them torqued correctly. Saw some other threads about replacing stock bolts with stronger ones - may give that a try too. For now, just wondering what the correct torque for the stockers should be. Thanks for any help.

This chart should help with any torque values you would need:


2008 DL650 VStrom Yellow and Black
Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

Thanks for the bolt table. I found someplace (another board I think) a torque spec for the footpeg mounts at 33 ft-lbs. Used that to torque these bolts and discovered that I had probably under-torqued them the last time. Will see how that holds.
