I spoke with my contact at Roadmaster regarding any torque specs when installing the Bushing Kit # RM-4139-300 that you referenced. He said that for the bushings themselves there isn't a recommended torque spec because you really just want to tighten them enough so that the bushing is being squeezed a bit. Overtightening can cause damage so you want to be careful.

For the saddle brackets it will depend on what size bolt you are using. For a 10mm bolt they recommend 37 foot pounds of torque and for a 12mm bolt they recommend 65 foot pounds.
