That's what I used. I went a little tighter than you described, but not much. Guess I'll just hope nothing comes up in the future, but it sounds like I tightened it pretty close to where it needed to be.

If it's a 10 mm flange bolt, the service manual says it should be torqued to 39 Nm or 29 ft-lbs.

Don't take that as gospel, though. The torque value the service manual gives for the oil filter casing bolts will snap them like twigs.

Every bike is a good bike. The question is whether or not it's the best bike for what you want to do.

Well, nothing "happened" when I finished torquing them. I'm assuming that if I did something to them I would have known when I went too far/applied too much torque?

From my experience with the oil filter casing, the bolts stretch before they break. You might want to take the bolts out and examine them to make sure they aren't deformed or damaged.

If they're standard bolts, they should be fine, but I tend to be paranoid about things breaking and causing a crash at highway speed.

It's so hard to get a concrete answer on torque pressure that I think I'm going to leave them. I used Loctite, so I don't think they're coming out. Maybe I'll take it into Honda at some point down the road and ask them about the pressure.
