You didn't say which Dyna series bike you have but I'm going to say that Sportster specs are not the same as for a Dyna. If you think you have a gap between your triple tree and the steering head of the bike, something may not be assembled correctly. I'd take to a shop or a dealer and have them check the front end.

Good Luck

SOURCE: what is the torque specs for the nut on the

You have an adjuster nut that you have to tighten just until you don't have any freeplay in the bearing and then the upper triple tree goes on. The pinch bolt tightens to 21-27 foot pounds. The fork stem nut tightens to 35-40 foot pounds according to the manual that I have here. I've found that if you torque the nut that tight, it will tighten the adjustment of the steering head bearings and they'll start to "count". When a bearing is "counting", it is too tight and you can feel it bump from one roller to the next as you turn the front end. If it starts this, you'll have to loosen the fork nut and back off on the adjuster and then retighten the fork nut. Recheck for bearing adjustment. Not "counting" and no shake in the steering head. It's touchy so be patient. I've had to simply tighten the fork stem nut until I got the right tension and disregard the torque setting as long as it felt like it was tight enough not to come loose.

Good Luck
Steve
