Galfer SS brake lines leaking!

I just installed a new Galfer Brake line on my 09 busa and one of the banjo bolts has a slight leak. I torqued it to 16 ft-lbs and it leaks. So I called galfer and the tech told me to torque it to 21 ft-lbs so i did and after hanging a paint can from the pedal for 20 minutes it is wet with some seepage around the banjo bolt. Any tips or tricks would be appreciated. I made sure it was clean and used new copper washers when i tightened it the 2nd time. Now im scared to install the front lines.
