Hey guys I want to start making sure I clean the front sprocket whenever I do a chain cleaning. Does anyone know the torque specs for the front sprocket cover? Thanks!

Unless you have a small torque wrench calibrated for that range
Harbor Freight sells a small torque wrench calibrated for that range, for $20. I checked the larger two torque wrenches they sell (also $20) and those two are accurate.

You don't need it for the fairing/cover bolts - those things you can just do hand tight/snug. But if you're like me and have a tendency to overtighten bolts, it's useful & worth the cost to have the tool on hand more important small bolts (coolant drain, wheel speed sensor, etc.).

generally these bolt doesnt need to be dead tight. just turn it to no free play and then tighten it a little bit more and you are OK
