What is the size of the steering head nut. I have a 2005 B.
Hoping that if I tighten it one hex it may result in less clunking when I hit a bump. Seems to be getting worse.

I use a 38mm socket and tighten to 60-65 ftlb after doing the fallaway

The typical clunk is from the bearing adjustment being loose. Below the top clamp is a star nut that tightens the slower clamp bearing / stem / top bearing assembly against the races in the neck. This adjustment is the "fall away".
