Question special torquing sequence?

It's time for me to start checking nuts and bolts.
Reading the handy torque spec list that someone here was kind enough to post, I see the engine mounting nuts require what it says is a special tightening sequence. Can anyone enlighten me on just what this entails?

The only thing 'special' that I can suggest, is to have a helper to hold the Head of the Lower Rear engine mount bolt so as the head can Not turn CCW on the LH side and drag the rubber chain slider up against the chain and therefore the swing arm. You may have to remove the LH foot rest & engine sprocket cover for access.

The fuel tank will need to be removed to access the top engine mounts & top sub-frame mounts, so it is recommended by me to adjust the excess slack out of the cold start (choke) cable while you are there.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
