GSXR Brake Tightening ????\'s

Hi,
I don't have a manual and am in need of torque values for the following parts:
Rear disc bolts
Rear caliper mounting bolts
Rear drive sprocket nuts
All on a 89 GSXR 750-1100

I truly appreciate your help, as I'm a lowly Yamaha FJ1200 rider trying to improve his bike by installing some excellent GSXR parts. The local library was of no help.
Thanks,
Bob

Hey at least it's part gixxer...anyway, the info I have is from my Clymer manual

Rear disc bolts -- 11 to 18 ft.-lb.
Rear caliper mounting bolts -- 21.5 to 26 ft.-lb.
Driven sproket nuts -- 35 to 52 ft.-lb.

If you need anything else just ask, I'll keep the book by my computer!!

Thank you, Robbo! You've helped me come one step closer to removing the old truck tire on the back of my bike and one step closer to modern rubber and motorcycling bliss!!

You will feel the night and day difference in the bike! And a bunch of better tires are for your taking.The only downfall is the bike will sit a bit lower than stock.

Thanks, Bandit Man. I heard I'm probably going end up making new dog bones afterwards to bring ride height up. Would love to make adjustable ones, going to look into that.
