I'm waiting for my manual to arrive but need to do the tire change now. What is the torque for the lug nuts? I haven't been able to find it.

For more detail, have a friend sit on the bike and hold both brakes. Make sure the bike is cold (pipes at least). Lever the torque wrench with your forearm on the pipe. Rotate the tire to get the best leverage criss cross. I mark each nut using a sharpie when I'm done with it.
