Steering Head Bearing Preload

Support the motorcycle so the front wheel is off the ground.

Position the steering stem straight ahead.

Hook a spring scale to the fork tube and measure the steering head bearing pre-load.

The pre load should be within 1.0 - 1.5 kgf (2.2 - 3.3 Ibf). If the readings do not fall within the limits, lower the front wheel to the ground and adjust the steering bearing adjusting nut.
