double check internet torque # for crankcase

So I am assembling my split cases and the manual says to see exploded view for torque for the 10mm and 6mm crankcase bolts. For the life of my I don't see an indication. Am I blind?!?

I am aware of the sticky and want to verify the torques for 10mm and 6mm bolts are universal regardless of where on the bike.

sticky says d10mm are supposed to be 29ft lb an 6mm are 11 ft lb. final. Can anyone confirm this is correct for the crankcase please?

I already had to take apart my reassembled case before tightening because the oil filter adapter fell out while aligning cases doh!

2002 vn750
AGM battery, Shinko 230 tires oversized front
Ear shaved - k&n pods, drilled clutch basket
40/138 jetting

If I can split a case and make it work - you can too!

I'm not sure which sticky you looked at, and I can't find it in the manual either. This thread makes me think it's significantly lower. 52-69 inch pounds, 19-25 foot pounds respectively.

I cannot find any specific torque value for the engine case halves either.
Try looking in Ma Kaw's OEM service manual here:
