Clymer misprint? Rear axle nut torque

I'm using a Clymer manual from, I believe, 2012. Whatever year it is, there is no value for the rear axle nut torque value. In fact, the only thing it says in the installation section is to finger tighten it. The number is also missing from the torque tables at the end of the chapter. The front wheel tread is mentioned in the chapter and in the table at the end, but nothing for the rear.

So two questions:
1) Am I missing something? Do you all have values in your Clymers? I wonder if mine's just a misprint? And
2) What is the torque needed for the rear wheel axle nut?

Thanks, y'all.

For your 2013 the torque value for the rear axle is 72 ft-lbs.

After working on my 2007 K1200LT for the past 11 years, the stunning simplicity of the KLR wiring schematic makes me smile. Reminds me of why I bought it.

They aren't images. They are .pdf files and they work fine.
