Just installed HK 2.5 classics exhausts. Should I torque the exhaust bolts on the engine block? If so, anyone know the torque value?

If you are asking about the studs, not the acorn nuts, the studs are threaded in to finger tight. Put some anti-seize on them. Then the acorn nuts get torqued to 17 pound/feet. 8)

And re-torque the acorn nuts after the first few rides. Let 'em cool down and torque wrench them again. They will crush over time, you want to keep them tight to keep the decel popping down.
