On the "How To;Step-by-Step" board is a list of torque specs for the 1800 and 1300. The bolts you listed are the same for any model

The steering stem nut should be set at 74 ft lbs
top fork pinch bolts set at 41 ft lbs
bottom fork pinch bolts set at 17 ft lbs
and the fork caps if you took those lose should be set at 25 ft lbs
