Just my opinion, but I would stick with the Triumph torque spec because that is what the fasteners and bearings are rated for. . Although it's unlikely the additional 28 nm would cause damage, I would hate to discover that the hard way. Just be sure to use the lock ring to prevent the nut from backing off, and zip tie the ends together so the lock ring can't fall off, either. That has been known to happen. The dealers in my area consider it SOP.
