Torque specs - campagnolo cage - (chorus/record) 11v

Hi, everybody, I cant find the torque specs in the campagnolo PDFs of this screw:


Does anyone know the recommended torque in Newton meters (NM)?

thanks!

In all my decades of Campy rear derailleur use, I have tightened variations of these screws the same: firmly. Never had one strip. Never had one come loose. Always grease the threads.

Thanks Kerry, maybe I didnt tighten it well, because, yesterday I had to stop, because the cage was almost hanging, I tightened a little bit this time, but wanted to be sure if to apply the correct torque to it.

thanks!

Bikes: too many sparkly Italians, some sweet Americans and a couple interesting Japanese

+1 , as Kerry says it is not at all critical. As an example Shimano says 2.5 to 5 NM, like a good twist of the wrist with a 4,5,6 Y wrench.

See this from Park Tool: https://www.parktool.com/en-us/blog/...s-and-concepts

About 2/3 of the way down, there is a section for Rear derailleur mounting bolt, listing Campy at 15 N-m or 133 in-lbs.
