Steering Stem Head Nut - 58 ft-lb - This is the nut on top of the top triple.
Steering Stem Nut - 15 ft-lb - This is the nut that is under the top triple and sets the tension on the steering stem bearings.
Thanks guys. I cranked it down with just a 12" cresent as I didn't have a 28 mm socket for my torque wrench. I doubt with the angle I had to use I got it to even 58 ft. lbs.. 100 ft. lbs. (suspension on by truck took around that) takes some tugging with a big ass torque wrench.
Incidently, I ran for quite a while without anything at all on there[:0] as I didn't even realize it was gone (no issues). My buddy said he thought he saw something fly off after I set down a wheelie kinda hard, but I didn't know what it was. I hope the nuts under the triple didn't loosen. I'll have to double check.
