Is it possible to adjust the neck bearings by only taking the top triple tree off with the handlebars?? I think I would jack up front but leave the front tire touching the ground and loosen the upper tree pinch bolts. I've torn it down before but I took everything off to replace the bearings and want to know if I can cheat alittle.

The steering head has to be free to move without added resistance to get the proper tention on the bearings. This isn't a critical adjustment as you only need to achieve minimum clearance(full contact without binding and zero endplay).
