Torque Specs and LED Taillight Blinkers HELP!

Does anybody know the motor mount bolt torque specs for 09 250R. Just got my frame sliders installed but I don't have the specs. Figure that's a pretty important set of bolts to get the torque spec right.

Also, I just got my LED taillight with integrated blinkers. But I can't get them to blink??? I hear the relay clicking but it's going really fast... Any help is appreciated I'm new here and it's my first bike!!!

Thanks all I really appreciate it!!!

I don't know about the torque spec, but the turn signal is a common problem on cars. The bike probably has a thermal flasher. A thermal flasher is dependant on load. More load = slower cycling. LED lamps draw less current, putting a smaller load on the flasher.
You can do one of two things. Either switch to an electronic flasher (often designated by part number EL-12 - about 10 bucks) or somehow add resistance to the circuit. You could add a small (maybe hidden) bulb to the circuit, or add an inline resistor.

If you still have problems, first check to make sure the LED is hooked up right. A LED is a diode, so current will only pass in one direction, so it is VERY important that correct polarity is observed.

According to the service manual, Engine Mounting Bracket Bolts and Nuts are 47ft-lb torque.

Hey man sorry I couldn't wait and found a killer deal on a PDF for the manual that had it and all 468 pages, if anybody here needs a manual page let me know...

However, some extra help on the integrated tail from Bike Monkey I'm getting some conflicting reports... From some other forums which I'm not sure are right say I need a thermal relay. From the part they said that I could hook them up but will blink fast (which I'm cool with) but they don't do anything other than constant on, and when I try and trip both wires a mega fast click comes from the relay, but no blinky LOL! I like this forum and figured someone has purchased the same taillight as I have from AU off Ebay (bike monkey) and hooked it up no problemo. It's one wire going into 2 which tossed me for a loop....

Thanks again guys and if you need some manual pages for something specific feel free to let me know.
