Not sure how you get a torque wrench on the banjo bolt heads to torque them down. Just don't be an ape with it and stop tightening when the bolt stops.
There you go. Not rocket science. Don't use a torque wrench. Torque specs are just for show.

Anyway, it's just my recommendation to use a torque wrench. Flipping washers didn't work for me.

P.S. I'm an ape.
