torque specs

I gotta throw the new tire on my buds shadow. 2000 750 ACE. Does anyone know the torque specs of the front axle bolt?
Better yet, does anyone have a pdf of repair manual for said bike?

Thanks guys,
JP

Correct method is very important.
The torque value is meaningless if the right hand axle pinch bolts are tight.
Make sure the axle is lightly oiled along the entire length, and that the fork leg axle bores are clean.
Clamp the axle with the left hand axle pinch bolts.
Tighten the axle end nut on the right.
Then tighten the right hand axle pinch bolts.
Then release the left hand axle pinch bolts.
Get on the bike, hold the front brake, and as energetically as you can, jounce the front end, then get off the bike and tighten the left hand axle pinch bolts.
This way the internal stack along the axle (bearing inner races, spacers etc) are hard stacked and properly preloaded, as well as helping towards minimizing your front end stiction. A 919 that has straight tubes and triple clamps that have been properly set up, will only see the left fork tube move a few thou after the jouncing has been done.
