Wheel Removal/Replacement Help

I am about to replace my 2018's F&R tires. I plan to remove the wheels from the bike myself and take them to Cycle Gear for tire installation. Unfortunately, I currently do NOT have the factory service manual. Can you guys provide me the list of torque figures for the following (or direct me to a reliable resource to find them):

Axle bolt
Axle pinch bolts
Radial front brake caliper bolts

Axle bolt
Axle pinch bolt
Rear brake caliper bolts

I have all the tools I need I just need the torque values for installation of wheels. Is there anything unusual/out of the ordinary that I need to be aware of in removing/replacing F&R wheels? This isn't my first time removing/replacing wheels on bikes, but it is the first time doing this on my 2018 Ninja 1000.

Thanks in advance.

For this kind of information the 2017 manual should suffice. I've put it out where you can get it:


Just to make it easier, page 398, 399 and 442 for brakes.
