Did you remove these forks from a model that had the DDC (electronic suspension) option fitted? If the forks are from a DDC model, there should be a small cable coming out from the top of the left stanchion.
When the bike is shutdown, the suspension valves are closed off, making the left fork leg stiff in operation.
Some pictures might help to clarify things.

It doesn't matter if it's torqued to spec or cross threaded. Tight is tight!!
