    Thanks for the pics. That is where you tighten/torque you steering stem while holding the top nut. Using a jack under the frame, raise the front of the bike so that the tire is 1 inch off the ground, then torque the steering stem from the bottom to 40 ft lbs, briskly turn the font end back and forth left to right, lock to lock. It should have just a bit of resistance, but not too much. But before you tighten it at all, what does the resistance feel like? Does it just easily flop side to side?

    Think I found my floppy handling problem. Had a growl start in front hub, so did a wheel bearing kit today. One bearing fell out in several pieces...dont know how it even kept rolling.

    Handling is now how it should be.. .no more wandering on the road. Thanks for all the help...the problem presented at the right time

    Thanks. Ken
