Let us know if you dealer does not have it. And check with your local 9 owners that have changed out to different pipes. If I remember correctly, they come with new bolts so they should have the old ones.

It is more then 16 lbs. I would have to look it up to tell you exactly what it is. Always tighten things up with a torque wrench on the bike.
Actually 16.5 ft/lbs is the torque value for the exhaust bolts. So, masochist was right there. Hey Ryan, get yourself a service manual, it's the only mod that keeps giving....:joke:

Ray, he hasn't figured out what that multiquote button is for yet. Don't expect him to decipher a service manual. :joke:

J/k Ryan, you keep on going my friend. :D

See now you are going to make me go out to my garage and get it. But if you guys say 16.5 then it is. I just thought it was more for those bolts.

Why wouldn't you just buy them from your local hardware store ? They are just a Metric Allen (Stainless)@ $1.00 each.

:agree: and get 10mm longer ones as well as the holes are deeper than they appear ;)

Because I did and the threads were slightly different...just enough for me to say no way and wait for the oem bolts to show up in the mail.
