I was reviewing the periodic maintenance section of the Voyager shop manual. I found the list of bolts, nuts, and fasteners that are supposed to be checked for tightness, and cross-referenced to the applicable pages in the manual, but have been unable to find torque specifications for a few of the items. Was wondering if anyone had that information. The items are:

Radiator Bolt
Fender mounting bolts (front & rear)
Saddlebag bolts
Trunk bolts

I find specs for the saddlebag and trunk stays, but not the saddlebags and trunk themselves.

Any assistance appreciated.

Never really thought about that. I just snug them up. 20000 miles and no problems so far.

LHB -- I also just snug them up. Obviously you don't want to tighten them so much that you crack the saddlebag plastic.

Can you measure the thread diameter (in mm) on those bolts? On p. 2-12 of the manual there is a chart for "general fasteners," and the chart gives torque values based on thread diameter.
