Yeah.. for some reason.. that didnt work out for me..at first the exhaust was too loose, so i tight more...... then still loose.. so i tight more.. then using the smallest ratchet i had.... and still broke the freaking head off... surely there is someone out there that knows the torque value of the supertrapp t-bolt clamp.... (pretty please!;))

The correct torque for the T-bolt clamps is........75 inch pounds.

i tried this out with my torque rench.... doesnt hold much @ 75 inch pound..... you sure bout that.. cause that is only 8.47 Nm according to the chart below (my torque wrench only has Nm on it) is the chart wrong? or am i missing something.

Multiply By To obtain
foot-pounds 1.3558 Newton-meters
foot-pounds 0.1383 kilogram-meters
foot-pounds 12.0 inch-pounds
inch-pounds 0.0115 kilogram-meters
inch-pounds 0.1130 Newton-meters
inch-pounds 0.0833 foot-pounds
kilogram-meters 7.233 foot-pounds
kilogram-meters 86.7964 inch-pounds
kilogram-meters 9.8067 Newton-meters
Newton-meters 0.7376 foot-pounds
Newton-meters 8.8508 inch-pounds
Newton-meters 0.1020 kilogram-meters

thanks

The specs came from our t-bolt clamp manufacturer, common sense is a good rule of thumb.
