Torque spec for bar ends?

I just bought a pair of axiom bar ends (clamp type) and there was no torque spec on the packaging... what should I torque the allen bolt(s) down to?

thanks in advance.

Just a guess here, but with my barends it was a case of just "do up until they dont move when forcefully pulled and yanked on". Worked fine for me

Also check the manufacturer of your handlebars. SOme of the lighter ones have warnings about tightening them too hard, especially carbon fiber handlebars.
I agree with metalhead, I tighten mine until I cannot move them, no more.
