Also known as the Lower Triple Tree. I am curious about the proper torque for the 2021 Lower Triple Tree bolt. Since my original post in some internet research I found that the torque spec for a much earlier NC700. I would assume it hasn't changed.

In my 2012 NC700X Honda service manual, under the front wheel/suspension/steering section, the torque specification for the “Bottom bridge pinch bolt”, quantity 2, 10 mm thread, is 39 Nm. Someone with a 2021 service manual could confirm if the value is unchanged for ‘21.

Several years ago some other forum member posted torque specs on a google drive document.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1mq7t9Y5Jdf0LY_VbTrgiuqhZPrCg10LjpVNryXei__o/pubhtml
That chart lists the same thing, however it has 29 NM in one column and 39 foot pounds in the other column. However 39 NM is 29 foot pounds and 29 NM is about 21.4 ft lbs.
I am confused, since on the chart in the spreadsheet it properly shows a higher number for Newton Meters and a lower number for foot pounds for all other bolts, whereas for the bottom bridge pinch bolt it is a lower number for Newton Meters at 29 and a higher number for foot pounds at 39.
From the chart:
Bottom bridge pinch bolt 2, 10mm 29 (39)
Top bridge pinch bolt 2, 8mm 22 (16)

I am confused since the chart either did the conversion in the wrong direction, or it was a typo. To convert Foot Pounds to Newton Meters you multiply by 1.356.

Helpful member fct37 sent me a message stating that he has the 2021-2022 manual.
He quoted the new book at:
bottom bridge pinch bolts 39 N.m(4.0 kgf.m, 29 lbf.ft)
Top bridge pinch bolts 22 N.m(2.2kgf.m, 16 lbf.ft)

That would be the proper conversion factor.
Thanks to fct37 and to 670cc.

Regarding other things front end, is the torque specified for the 2021 and 2022 front axle pinch bolt still 22 Nm as it was in the past?
What I want to do is a simple 5 degree straightening of the handlebar versus the front wheel. After a little jolt my wife encountered, her fork seems to be slightly twisted. The method of re-aligning the fork is simple enough. I am simply verifying the torque needed for the front lower triple clamp (triple tree) and front axle pinch bolt.
