    2007 FLHTC specs. are axle nut 50-55 ft.lbs., fork cap bolts 132-180 inch lbs. There is also procedure to align fork leg before tightening clamp bolts. Softail specs may be the same, but I'm not sure.

    50 TO 55 ft. lb. per the manual for that bike.

    I suggest you get a factory manual for that bike.
