Reinstalling front forks and wondering if there is any procedure to use for tightening everything up....or not worry and just put it together? Thanks for any advise.

Loosen up axle, axle pinch bolts, upper triple tree bolts and steering stem pinch bolt. Leave lower triple tree bolts tightened.
Then.....
Pump the forks up and down 2-3 times....tighten axle....pump forks again....tighten lower axle pinch bolts...
Pump forks....tighten upper triple tree bolts....pump again and tighten steering stem pinch bolt.

This will reduce any fork stiction (binding) to a minimum. It really works. I do it a couple of times a year just to realign things and I can feel the difference afterwards. Forks move up and down more freely.
