Arrow engine mount torque specs ( frame slider install)

Hello everyone, I just bought a 2018 gsxs 1000f and was wondering what the torque spec is for the engine mount bolts. I installed shogun frame sliders and have seen and read torque specs from 60 to 40.5 ft lbs for the bolts. Just want to make sure i use the correct torque. I did it by hand tight with a long 8mm hex and wrench and than used a torque wrench and tried tightening it at 60 ft lbs, but my torque wrench would not click and i got nervous, as I did not want to possibly strip the threads on the engine. Any help would be great. I just hit 10 miles on the odometer.

Go here using internet explorer (Chrome doesn't work right) and search for torque and click the little hand to the right of Engine Mounting Thrust Adjuster. Each of the bolts has different torque specs but they all fall in that range. (See image)

I used the 40.5 number.
Here's one of the threads on the topic.

If I remember correctly (which I might not... user beware). I double checked with the torque specs in another place on the internet so it must be true.

Ok, thanks. I don't see the bolts handling 60 ft lbs without stripping the threads. I tightened it by hand and it was tight. Tried torquing it to 60 ft lbs and it would not move more, so i stopped before probably stripping the threads.
