    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
