from memory its around 25nm but its not critical. just do them up as tight as you can with a spanner or ratchet. if your worried about them coming loose then smear a bit of blue loctite.

I do em up left hand tight with a drop of blue loctite. being right handed, 4 months down the track when I change pads again I can crack em with my right hand.

Reverse hands if your left handed though.
