I have always had a question in torquing the two bolts clamping the fork tube to the triple clamps. When you tighten one of the two bolts to the proper foot pounds, the other bolt (upon rechecking) appears to loose it's torque. Vice-versa on retightening. If you bring them both up gently they seem to have a considerable amount of torque. I am concerned with pinching the fork tube. How can you achieve the proper torque on both bolts at the same time?
