Well, seeing that you didnt post a question but merely a statement, I assume that you would like this issue resolved.

This bike has a threaded headset. Take it to your local bke shop (lbs) and have them adjust it for about $15. If you bring a six pack, it might even be able to be done while you wait.

97 gmc 2500 with 454 loses head lights and power steering when at slow speed it has a loose belt have been puting dressing on it

since that belt turns the alternator and the power steering pump it may not be a bad idea to figure out why it is loose and get that fixed first.

Steering too lose

From the images I have seen of the bike the loose steering could be resolved by tightening the allen screw (hex key) in the goose neck. If you were sitting on your bike and looking at the handle bars, just below where the handle bars adjust, pivot forward or back, there is an allen head bolt going down. Tightening up this bolt should tighten your steering. Some bikes have a standard bolt headed bolt to tighten the steering. Good luck!

What bolts do i tighten on the steering? Went to a tire shop and they said that it is loose.

depends on the make and model of your vehicle. in general (most vehicles) there is an adjustment on the steering box. look for a large nute with an allen head set screw in the middle of it, place an allen head wrench on the adjustment screw to ensure it doesnt move and break the set nut free, turn the adjustment screw down one half of a turn and re tighten the set nut. go test drive you car around the block, repeat as necessary. me sure not to over tight/over adjust your steering box, this will cause your car to handle dangerously ans easily loose control. if this process doesnt cure the issue check for a worn rag join and universal joint on the steering pillar. also check for worn out bushings, pitman arms, drag links, track bars and tie rod ends

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.

I am looking at buy a 1999 rt 1100, it has 'cupping' on the front tire, what causes this?

If you run low tire pressure you can get cupping on the sides of the tires. Tire pressure needs to be checked regularly and kept at the recommended pressure or above.
Another cause of tire cupping can be bad or loose steering head bearings. Loose bearings will cause the wheel to wobble when decelerating just like low tire pressure. It can sometimes be detected just by turning the handle bar from side to side. If it feels like the steering wants to lock in the driving straight position or you feel ripples or bumps while you turn the bar from side to side you need new steering head bearings and races.

Steering column loose and causes auto to stall and jump out of gear when steering wheel moves.

There are 3 tilt colum screws deep inside the colum, it's common for them to come loose and eventually cause wiring problems. special tools are required to thighten the torx head screws.

Used colums for that year are cheap however.

Heavy steering when turning right but not left on my 1999 honda cb600f

Lift the front end and see if the steering head bearings are loose. Grab the lower end of the forks and see if you can wiggle the steering head. Adjust untill thee is no play there. If your bearings are shot it won't matter and you will have to replace them.

if you can, pull steering wheel, steering lock wheel(spring compressor needed,from auto parts store,free) pull signal switch (three screws) out far enogh to see tilt mechinizm, there are three black bolts to be tightened, if you wiggle the tilt column you should see them loose, a small socket will fit star shaped bolt heads
