:hmm2: I've got a little over 10K miles on my 2003 VTX1800 Retro. The steering was nice and tight when the bike was new, but the bars can now be moved with a feather when the bike is up on a stand. I'm also noticing a bit of a knock when I hit a bump in the road. From the manual, adjusting the steering stem nut itself seems pretty straight forward, but I'd like to do it without disassembling the entire front end. If anyone has performed this adjustment I'd welcome any advice, especially if there are any known shortcuts.
