Triple tree and handlebar clamp torque specs

Anyone know the torque specs for the triple tree clamps and handlebar clamp Allen head bolts on a 2014 650. I had to take mine apart and was wondering what values were or, if it even matters if I just give them all a good wrench.

16.5lb-ft.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Is that 16.5 for both, the two triple tree clamp bolts and all four of the handle bar clamp bolts? Is there a pattern for the handlebar clamp bolts such as front first, back first, etc. Also, blue loctite?

Oh yeah, what about the large 1 1/4" nut on the center of the triple tree. Is that one 16.5f/lb too?

All those 8mm shank bolts are 16.5lb-ft. If you take a close look at the top clamps, you'll see a small crater close to one of the bolt holes. The end with the crater is best placed forward of the bar and the bolt in the hole nearest the crater is best done first. Then the other bolt in each can be done. That stuff isn't critical though. The big steering stem head nut spec is 65.0 lb-ft.

See How much torque should I use on the bolts? for torque specs but pay attention to the warning at the top for corrections to the chart.

THANK YOU A BUNCH. Took it apart and want to get it back together ASAP. Was looking for service manuals on line and found the cheapest factory one to be around $90. Didn't want to spend it now or wait until it gets here to put bike back together. Going to get a service manual though.

On the lower, double, clamp bolts, make sure you go back and forth on them.
