Question about Harley Davidson FXST Softail Standard Motorcycles
How to tighten steering head bearing
1. Grease the fitting on the side of the neck
2. Use chisel and hammer to bend back the lock tabs on steering stem nut, then remove the nut and plate, if any. The spanner nut for the adjustment is visible at full lock right and left positions. The spanner nut should be adjusted so the forks return to the center position, when released from full lock position. The Stem nut should be tightened to between 60-80 ft. lb.s .
3. When doing the adjustment, it is necessary to have any windshield, fairing or accessories mounted in order for the adjustment to be correct.
4. If any problems with wobble, vibrations, etc. check that the tire tread hasn't worn unevenly, i.e., no cupping or high spots.
