I am going to install new all ball bearings in my 1300R and need to know what size spanner wrench
will fit the steering stem nut?

Thanks for any help,
Toby

You probably mean the castle nut that puts the torque onto the steering stem bearings. This nut has a unique pattern of notches that only a special socket will fit properly. It is possible to use large channel locks or even a pipe wrench to tighten this castle nut but by using these tools, you will not be able to torque this nut to the desired value.
