There is a small amount of force on the pan bolts...... the recommended numbers are in the shop manual for that bike, which you can download from this site. If it doesn't recommend a torque pattern.use one anyway. It should also state if you need thread locker.

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
