Engine cover bolt torque

Getting ready to put some black engine covers on my Thruxton and I can't find the bolt torque values anywhere. Anyone know these by chance?

Here you go... This is the link to the Triumph Black Engine Cover Fixing/Bolt Kit (A9618190).
It has the Triumph recommended torque values for each bolt, and even states what the best order to torque each one is. Just click the link below! Cheers.
(It states each bolt for both engine covers has a torque value of 10Nm and/or 7.4ft-lbs.
And if you bought the Triumph Black Sprocket Cover as well, the torque value for those four bolts are 9Nm/6.6ft-lbs.)

If you have a torque wrench capable of telling the difference between 9 and 10 N.m you must work for NASA! Even getting one that reads (accurately)that low is hard.

I bought a Craftsman Micro torque wrench at Sears. It reads accurately from 5ft-lbs to 75ft-lbs. So far so good with it. (6Nm to 101Nm)

Got it all apart but the hex head stator bolts and torx head magnetic pickup screws weren't included with the kit, and I cant find the tq specs on those. Sounding like I should've had the dealer do this...

The 3 bolts that hold the stator to the cover 12 Nm

The 2 that hold the crankshaft position sensor to the cover 9 Nm

Thank you!

Are there any on the clutch side I need to worry about before opening that side up?

I think my smallest TQ wrench will work fine. Bought a brand new set for when I started modifying my LS7. They're not cheap to fix!

I don't work for NASA, but this 1200cc bike feels like a rocket ship to me!

How do you know it reads accurately? I agree with STroadster, I don't trust any consumer grade torque wrench to read accurately at low torque settings, and certainly wouldn't rely on a torque wrench at values under, say, 15 or 20 ft-lb.
