I think the list you're looking for is on my site, originally one of Trinc's files:

EDIT: THESE ARE 98+ TORQUE SPECS

Those were 98+ Torque specs. I just edited the entry to reflect that fact.

Is there any difference in the torque spec for the 04+ front axle that doesn't have a nut but a 12mm hex bolt? Or is it the same as what's listed for the 98+ front axle nut?

The Bandit's rear axle torque spec is 61-83lbs too. I'm suspicious the 47 ft/lb...

there are torque spec with the cotter and a torque spec without the cotter, too different specs.
88-97 Katana 600
with cotter - 36-58
without - 40-63
same for the 750
there isn't a torque spec on the bolts, there is on the NUT.

The 04 front axle doesn't have a nut. One end of the axle has a 12mm hex socket and the other end is threaded and screws directly into the left fork. There is no nut. I was asking whether the torque spec for that is different from the nut torque for 98-03.

Arsenic, from your reply it seems like they may be different. Can anyone with a 04+ service manual chime in ?
