Default 2014 HD Service Manual: Exhaust Flange Nut Torque Spec Wrong!

Has anyone else noticed the 2014 HD Service manual says 96-120 ft-lbs vs. in-lbs for the exhaust flange nut spec? I searched around but only found a thread on primary inspection cover screw torque specs. I'm not an experienced mechanic. I'm an experienced technical mgr with, apparently, an over dependence on using the manual. In my profession that's one of the ways we ensure new guys do things the same way as the old guys. Boy did it screw me this time. I got up to about 70 ft-lbs before realizing something was wrong. I may have stripped the bolts inside the heads. Dealer's going to look at it during 10k check today. I'll submit the manual comment/feedback form in the front of the book, but I thought this might be a quicker way to protect the next poor guy using the service manual to put new pipes on. Suggestions for a better post to spread the word quicker are welcome.

It should be obvious that such a small stud won't be 100 ft-lbs.

To an experienced mechanic, yes. To an aspiring mechanic, not necessarily. I'm just saying, using an unreliable manual is a pretty expensive way to buy experience. Maybe those of us who weren't born with that innate common sense just don't deserve to have Harley's...

Ahhh, exhaust flange torque values... what a crock 'o poo that is.
Correct or incorrect specs has never gotten me further than a few hundred miles, before I had to go and tighten it all down again!

My method for checking to see if it's all button down right has always been the German values first. Then check with a torque wrench to see where it's at and adjust as needed.
Usually goodentight is right.

I use anti seize and go to around 90 in-lbs. Never been a problem.
