    Torque / locktite question for rockers

    For the rockers (2004 - relatively current), does anyone of have the torque settings for:

    - Screw for the upper shock / rockers
    - Screw for the lower shock / front triangle
    - Locking washer and screw for the front triangle / rockers
    - Beveled screw for seatstay / rockers

    I'm sure if they just need to be greased or locktite.

    Thanks.

    Cris, you know V applies Loctite to all of those bolts at the "Factory"?
    As Vince pointed out, #242 "Blue".
