    Sorry, I haven't let you know how the ole steering bearing project came out. Once I finally got the darn thing tightened down enough it works great. I had not been able to ride much since I made the repair until this past weekend. The bike handled great and no wobble. Thanks for your help and advise.

    After visiting with you at lunch during our ride to Eureka Springs I am going to replace the steering bearings in my bike. I have been reading the threads about it and have a couple of questions I thought you might be able to answer.

    1. What did you use to remove the steering stem nut? How did you torque the steering stem nut after bearing and race replacement?

    2. Did you say you used an 1 7/8 inch trailer ball to put the new races back into the steering stem?

    Any information will be greatly appreciated. pm me here or give me a call. cell phone 417-359-6724.
    thanks,
    John
