None given that I can find. I don't think it's an especially stressed component, I'd probably do about 10nm. Alyone else would probably just say "tight". But I did pads on mine once and I remember trying to find that torque as well.

Thank you!

I'm sure snugged up with the retainer clip should do it. Just fussy about anything to do with wheels and brakes, Anyway, thanks for the response.

If you mean the front brake caliper bolts, the owner's manual says 30NM.

No, he means the pins that hold the pads IN to the caliper.
