FWIW, the manual specs 16 lbf-ft. But I too just do it by feel, way too hard to get a torque wrench in there.

Worked as a Honda wrench for five years, we never torqued, but we were shown how to tighten them to the right "feel" as everyone else is saying.

Just think about it this way. a 1 ft long wrench with 1# of force exerted on the end is 1 footpound of torque.

I never have had one come loose going just by feel and that includes engines that turn up to 14 k rpm. Torque if you want but don't loose too much sleep if you don't.
