Exotic Carbon Torques

I've just bought an exotic matrix II stem 90mm and 31.6mm seatpost but alas, there is no torques stamped on them, I just wondered if anyone knew any of the torques for the stem, or a recommended torque for the post (i'm using a superstar balance bolt clamp). I've been in contact with Carboncycles but no answer as of yet

Cheers me dears

    seat post tight enough so it does not slip.

    the figures should be on the clamp as it is its threads that will be the part being torqued not the post.

    the stem will depend on the bolt size and material.
