You mean the steering head nut or the triple clamp bolt? 2 different things. The steer stem nut is below the triple clamp. If that top nut comes off, it's not dangerous as the triple clamped is clamped to the forks tubes and alignment bolts. If that's loose you may or may not feel some vibration in the handlebars under braking, but it's not an "oh Jesus!" bolt and you're front end isn't going to fall off if that nut comes loose!
Snug it back up and use a little loctite on the threads. I'm at work and don't know the exact torque on it, but 20-30 lbs should be more than sufficient.
I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Reason: Too much torque specified!
