The service manual page is for VIN after 515213.
Is there a section on Head bearings for VIN up to 515212?

My VIN is 502072 (2011 800XC) so close-ish to yours and the workshop manual states tighten the adjuster nut to 40Nm, slacken it off then re-tighten to 15Nm before fitting the tab washer and locknut.

I emailed Triumph about it.
Got following answer:
Hi,

In the revision of the later service manual  the final tightening torque was lowered from 15Nm to 10Nm.

So first 40Nm and then untightened and retightened to 10Nm is correct.

I had the same problem after changing fork oil, it went away of its own accord after riding for maybe 40 miles and this seems to be normal from others' experiences. I think its to do with the new oil fully refilling the damper and bushes. Give it a good ride before adjusting anything else, it might not be necessary.

Seems to be the brake discs. Have not thought about it before but it is the small movement in the floating discs

I had that clunk on my previous ST1050 caused by play in the disc/bobbins. Easy to check if it's that at home, get somebody to put an ear down there while you push then brake, hear clearer without the engine running.

I have a 2011 XC
(I used fork oil recommended from a Triumph dealer)
Is there any differences in the steering bearings on different years (VIN)?
Thought about it saying 15nm in the manual online (early revision) and 10nm in mine?

When I've set it on Hondas the routine was to get the front end raised up and rock the steering from side to side, gradually tighten the nut till you can feel resistance to turning, then slacken it slightly so it's just free, avoids worrying about Nm values, check again after tightening the locknut  :028:
