Front brake caliper pin torque

Hi All,

I am replacing my front brake pads and rotors and would like to know the torque for the 13mm caliper bolts (the ones holding the caliper on). My search shows between 11 and 30 ft lbs.

There has to be one torque setting, does anyone know what it is

thanks

11 sounds closer to right. I know they will strip fairly easily and then you have a problem. I was thinking 8-11, but I'll check and edit it in...


It is indeed 11 ft lbs.
