Torque spec for Handle bar bracket

Hey all,

Picking up a set of apes, did this before I got the service manual for the 16RG, can someone tell me the torque spec for the handle bar bracket?

TIA

5. Tighten upper handlebar clamp screws as follows:
a. Tighten front screws until upper and lower handlebar
clamps make contact.
b. Tighten rear screws to 16-20 ft-lbs (21.7-27.1 Nm).
c. Tighten front screws to 16-20 ft-lbs (21.7-27.1 Nm).

I think I put a little extra on them once I went to the 14" bars.

The pre-Rushmore FL manual said 16-20 ft.lbs... you probably knew that!

Uh, oh - I was slower than slowglide here!
