Since they don't have a special torque spec just use the standard torque for M6 bolts (If I remember correctly they're 10mm head, 6mm/M6 thread). If you can find the general torque section in the manual it should tell you exactly or maybe somebody else will know exactly off the top of their head. I think it's about 6 or 7 ft lbs

^^^yes, and 6 to 7 foot lbs is a small number. In other words - make them tight, but be careful, try to have a good "feel" for when they are tight but not beyond. 6mm bolts break off more easily than one might think at times, and the occasional clutch spring post breakage happens too (but rarely)

Sorry - that's why I just use feel for 6mm and other small bolts, and tried to emphasize "feel" to you on these bolts. Torque specs are more for things that need to be even and reach a specified level of tightness, usually larger stuff that could easily be over-tightened or cylinders and heads that need to be even across all studs.
