The Easton instructions say to use the torque spec from the shifter manufacturer. Shimano specs 6-8 Nm (53-70 inlb). Seems high for such a small surface area.

Just trying to guess from last years memory, Campy manual says 7nm. I got very thin (scarily so) walled high modulus bars and stopped at 4, maybe 5, with plenty of paste in the mix. They did not move since and I am very heavy. I guess tighten to 4, lean on them, tighten more if needed...

Park tool on youtube goes the safe way (imo) and recommends to only use the torque you need. Tighten the clamp and try to push the shifter sideways. As long as it doesn't "easy" move sideways it's the right torque.

Shimano says 7nm for Dura Ace shifters. Probably for the rest as well. Since I also rest my weight on the shifters, a secure fixation is more important to me than the risk of damage to the bar. So I tightened them to that spec. On my MTB, however, I have them much looser, so that they hopefully will twist away in event of a crash.
