I called the dealer for info on mine. They said there manual says 24 foot pounds but they usually don't even use a torque wrench on them. Just make sure they are tight. Check them after a ride to make sure they aren't loose and you should be good.

This is an engine bolt too, and I believe it's 74.5, but don't quote me. I didn't torque my left one tight enough, and the engine popped, since it was moving up and down with accel.
