It would be great if someone can tell me what the "prescribed torque" is for that upper cap in this picture.

Here is the Workshop manual FRONT SUSPENSION torque specs for your viewing pleasure.....

I don't see an upper cap in there

Thanks

Just Nipped up is all that is required , It isn't a "Working" part , and with the tension of the O-ring it is very unlikely to ever come undone Thumbs Up
I loosen these before removing the tubes from the triple clamps, and tighten (using an adjustable wrench with masking tape on the jaws to prevent marking the softer alloy hex) after refitting
Just because it is a BIG thread and 22mm hex doesn't mean it requires a huge torque cheers
