Vado crank arm torque

My Vado 4 has developed a minor noise that on a conventional bike I would say is a "creaky bottom bracket." Before I resort to my LBS, it seems like a possible source would be the tightness of the crank arm bolts. Does anyone know what the torque spec for this bolt is? If I'm going to try to tighten them, I'd like to use my torque wrench so I can at least tell if they've loosened up at all.

Did torque wrench solve the creak?
After examining the situation, I decided that it's beyond my current capabilities. Mainly, that much torque requires having a way to solidly lock the crank in position and I wouldn't want to jury rig something that could cause damage or whatever. So I'll take it to my LBS in a couple weeks.
