torque on forks.

Hi there Stromers. I am going to raise my front fork in the triple tree and don't know the torque values to retighten. It's a 2015 650 XT (abs etc) does anyone have the proper torque settings after I raise the tubes?
Thanks in advance.

Got it done and I think it handles better. Easier to reach the ground. It's a overall feeling, not one thing. Glad I did it.

Great. Do you have a fork brace? Adding one will increase that "more direct feel" at the bars even more.

Yes Brockie, One of the first things I did was add a fork brace.
