I'm currently installing my Vortex 15T front sprocket while I wait on the chain and the rear to arrive, and would like to know what the nut should be torqued to? Also, what should the nuts on rear sprocket be? I searched and found mixed info. Thanks in advance!

the 06,
front sprocket nut 61 ft/lbs
rear wheel sprocket nuts, 72ft/lbs

and yes paytheon is right, locktite is supposed to be used on all sprocket nuts for the 06. the manual doesn't say to use locktite on the 03. I guess it couldn't hurt anyway.
