Does anyone know if there are torque specs for the alternator fastener bolts on a 1989 GL1500? Thanks.

Yes. 22 ft-lb for alternator mounting bolts (qty 3).

I replied to the other duplicate post by looking in the service manual shown below.
Did I miss something in replying 42 ft-lbs instead of 22?

That's the torque for the coupler mounting nuts, not the alternator mounting bolts. The mounting bolts are 22 ft-lb:

Wow, I can't find that in either my Honda Service or Clymer manuals.
Are you looking at something different?
Could it be that I'm looking at the 96 service manual and Clymer for 93-00 instead of 89?
I guess either way, I'm going to pencil in the torque for these.

Look in the Charging System chapter of your service manual. It's on page 17-2.

Thanks, I see it now. Silly me, I went to the index and then to 17-10.
