Torque value for exhaust cap nuts??

I also asked this in a different thread but this way the title will stand out more. So: what is the torque value for the exhaust cap nuts? I've done everything to button up and complete a project with the exception of torqueing the cap nuts.

It appears to be sealing. I only ran it for about 5 minutes as it was 9:00 PM and I didn't want to upset the neighbors. I didn't get to ride it any this weekend. Bummer.
