There is no torque setting on the steering head bearings of ANY motorcycle. If you do not know how to adjust using 'fall away' procedure then take motorcycle to a dealer as you may cause a serious handling problem leading to a fatal crash.

My steering his still and cranky I think my bearings have gone not sure how yo undo the head case


Mark:

I don't know what type of bicycle you have, or how modern it is, but the handlebar and steering head are similar on most models. Try to remove the handlebars and steering head from the bike as a unit. There is a large nut at the top of the head tube (where the steering stem goes into). Loosen this nut, and the handlebars and steering stem should pull up and out of the bearing inner races. When you completely remove that nut, the headset will come apart... (including the fork and front tire which will drop out of the headset. If your brake and shifting cables are too short to let you pull the steering stem completely out of the steering head, you'll need to remove the handlebars from the steering stem. If you are careful, the bearing set, spacers and washer will stay on the fork tube when it comes out of the bicycle frame head, so you will know which order to reassemble them in. Either tag them or lay them in the proper order. Now you can clean the bearings or replace them.
It would be a good idea to clean the bearing races at the top and bottom of the steering head too.

Once everything is cleaned and ready to reassemble, grease the bearings and the bearing races and reassemble. When you tighten the stem nut down, make sure that there is no play between the steering head and the steering stem.

What is the torque specs for the nut on the bearings on the triple tree


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

I don't know what make my bike is so I picked one at random How do I remove the steering stem from my pit bike forks I've got it to start wobbling but i'm not sure what way the yolk comes off?


The top center nut turns counter clockwise for stem removal. Either the nut is too lose and is letting the stem to wobble on the bearing or the bearing is shot and needs to be replaced. The forks will probably need to be removed if you need to actually remove the steering stem. Please rate my answer.

Locked forks no movement


Sounds like your fork bearings are locked up or the nut just below your handle bar stem is to tight.In any case taking apart the fork and do a quick inspection. Regrease or replace your bearings and your back on track. Excuse the pun.
