Harley 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.

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


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.

2005 klx 110 steering stem loose

This problem is caused by a loose fit of the steering head bearings into their pressed in bearing race cones, if the play is not to severe you can tighten the nut at the top of the steering head shaft to eliminate the excess play, do not over tighten the nut, tighten it enough to just remove the excess free play, but leave a slight amount of play or you can damage the bearings. If after doing the above the steering head is hard to move you either have damaged/worn steering head bearings or you have the bolt to tight.

Hi, my scooters steering has gone strange,i think it might be because it is loose.Is it something that i could fix myself? Its a generic xor 125

Be sure the front axle net is tight. Next, check the center nut on the steering stem. It attaches to the stem and will have a lock nut on top of it, (green highlight). The bearing nut, (blue highlight), should be snug against the stem bearing. Too tight and the steering is stiff. Too loose and the steering is squirrelly. Note; the bearing may have gone bad. If so, replace it. Once the bearing nut is set, lock it down with the lock nut. The image below is generic. tombones49_6.gif

Vibration at 45 to 60 mph. Had new tires and balanced installed,serviced.

You need to tighten/adjust your frame neck bearings. There are an upper and lower bearing in the frame that the lower triple clamp pivots on so you can steer the motorcycle. If they are not adjusted correctly and are basically set too loose you can have several problems from steering wobble on deceleration to vibrations at varying speeds. Take off your bars and upper clamp , then snug up the steering stem nut just enough that it is starting to bind, then back it off enough that the bar turns smoothly lock to lock (probably1/4 to 1/2 turn). Then tighten the stem nut and recheck for binding. If you can feel pulsing or bumps in the smoothness of the pivoting/turning of the handlebar , you will need to replace the bearings. Tightening the steering stem nut may be all you need to do to stop the vibration.

How do I adjust the steering head bearing from a 2008 HD road king classic

Jack bike so front wheel is off the ground.
Push handlebar to left until front end starts to continue turn by itself.
When it hits the fork stop (rubber bumper), it should bounce to the right, fall back to the left, then bounce right one more time before stopping, somewhere around the center position.

Remove headlight nacelle.
Remove steering stem nut (on top of top triple clamp).

Under the top triple clamp is a star adjuster ring.
Tighten to decrease swing (tightening bearings).
Loosen to increase swing (loosening bearings).

Reinstall steering stem nut (60-80 ft/lbs).
Reinstall headlight nacelle.

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.
