Brake torque specs

Hey! I'm having trouble finding the torque specs for the bolts on my front brake calipers. This is for the RS. Does anyone know them? Thanks.

Good and snug (elbow, not ugga dugga), with a dab of loctite 🙂

My RS front calipers had copper grease anti cease on the bolts so I didn't use loctite. But yeah I've only hand tightened, didn't feel the need to torque wrench those bolts.

As someone who has had a front brake caliper fall off due to improper tightening of the bolts and suffered potentially catastrophic loss of front braking, I would highly recommend using a torque wrench and tightening the caliper bolts to the manufacturer's specifications. But hey! If the brakes don't stop it, something will.

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

This seems like an unnecessary risk. I highly recommend torquing the fasteners to the appropriate amount -- they're responsible for holding together one of the two primary modes of control you have over your bike. -.-
