Does anyone have the torque setting handy for the large compression bolt at the bottom of the Showa fork leg (2001 ST4)?

I cannot find a value for it in the ST4 or ST4s SM. There is some discussion about it in the middle of this page:
https://www.waste.org/~knobs/fork_rebuild3.html

Note that it is about rebuilding the forks with gold valves. That step should be the same though, except as noted.

It doesn't look like the old ducatiwiki.net site had a value for it either. See the pic below.

If it is an M14x1.0 into aluminum, 25N-m to 30N-m feels about right?

Have a good one.

Thanks guys!
I had 30nm hand written in my service manual but had no idea where that number came from. When I went to look it up to verify the number I came up nada.
Maybe I got it from some of the instructions for the Gold Valves I installed a few years back.

Thanks again!
