I doubt that you will find one listed any place. Ural has never been good about listing specs like this. For one thing back in the bubble gum fastener days the threads would strip way before you ever reach the given torque spec.
We may not have it all together,
But, together we have it all.

Generally speaking.... 10mm bolt , 8.8 grade; 30-33 ft. lb.

And as Lee observed... if you haven't replaced the OEM bolts, you might want to consider it.
