    not sure about an '01; however, the torque should not differ from an '09. Here's what the '09 service manual recommends:

    INSTALLATION
    1. Place handlebars on lower handlebar clamps. Install upper
    handlebar clamp and loosely install clamp screws.
    2. Verify that the handlebars are centered, and snug upper
    handlebar clamp screws.
    3. Slowly turn handlebars to the full right fork stop and then
    the full left fork stop to be sure there is no contact with the
    fuel tank. If contact occurs and handlebars are properly
    aligned, raise handlebars as necessary until the proper
    clearance is obtained.
    4. Tighten upper handlebar clamp screws as follows:
    a. Tighten front screws until upper and lower handlebar
    clamps make contact.
    b. Tighten rear screws to 16-20 ft-lbs (21.7-27.1 Nm).
    c. Tighten front screws to 16-20 ft-lbs (21.7-27.1 Nm).
    NOTE
    A slight gap will exist between the upper and lower clamps at
    the rear of the handlebars after tightening.
