    The first item everyone should purchase, before any other performance stuff or bling, is the Service Manual for their specific year and model of bike. You said "yet" so I'm hoping there's one in your near future!

    Per the manual for an '07 Dyna, page 2-78:

    7. Secure handlebars in clamp"
    a. Tighten two rear fasteners until cast-in spacers contact risers.
    b. Tighten front fasteners to 12-18 ft-lbs (16.3-24.4 Nm).
    c. Final tighten rear fasteners to 12-18 ft-lbs (16.3-24.4 Nm). Slight gap between
    upper and lower clamps should exist at front
    8. Tighten riser fasteners to 30-40 ft-lbs (40.7-54.2 Nm).
