Eagle Mike Fork Brace Torque - Need Help...

Hey All

I have my Eagle Mike fork brace in place but I don't know the torque specs for the bolts that clamp it on the forks.

I have read 68 in-lbs, but that seems really light....

Any help would be appreciated.

69 inch pounds is what it's supposed to be. Didn't it come with instructions? You don't want to over tighten a fork brace.

Just a dab of blue loctite and 68in-lbs is plenty. You just want enough to hold it in place and not rattle loose.
