I untightned the front to 60 from 70 which was barely 1/8th of a turn down....

I really dont see that effecting anything

maybe going from 58 to 100 but not to 70 anyways its done
I also tightned from 70 to 85 on the rear which was barely 1/6th of a turn

and I know about the pinch bolts on the forsk you gotta tightnen the axle bolt first then tighten the fork bolts 1 turn at a time per all till they are all tight

Honestly, you shouldve backed it all the way then tighten it back to the torque you needed..you really should get a manual though. $.02

There is a reason the engineers put the torque specs in the service manual.

If you aren't going to take advice, why ask in the first place?
