I'm in the process of fitting some Powerbronze crash bobbins to my new 2019 Z1000sx. Does anyone know the correct torque figures for the engine mounting bolts?
I've seen the torque figures that have been posted for a 2011 bike, but are the latest bikes the same?

Isn't exactly what you need but has the most common settings, I'm not near my manual for a wgilse so can't get the exact figures

Followed it to fit my bungs after my little mishap, couldn't get the o/s top bolt out to save my life

Neither could I.  The forward bolt holes on both sides which the R&G blocks use are completely open to the elements on the rear face.  Aluminium engine block + steel bolts + road crap = seized bolts.  Managed to ease right one out but left snapped  :230:. A few hours with a very nice mechanic and bolt drilled out but basically take care - nearly trashed my engine to fit the R&G bungs.  This issue will likely affect anyone with a bike that's spent a few years on the road

And yes, I should have stepped away as soon as the bolt wouldn't budge  :003:
