Default Re: How to Maintain a Motorised Bicycle

I agree with crassius, to a point regarding torque values. Yes, you want them tight enough to keep the engine where it's supposed to stay but you do not want to overtighten the fasteners. That is why I recommend using a torque wrench and not exceeding about 60 inch pounds on those 6mm studs/nuts.
"Tight enough" might be too tight and you don't want to replace a heli-coil, believe me.
