Hi All,



I'm doing new steering stem bearings and I'm not sure which nut (upper or lower)

gets torqued the hardest. It said to torque one to 74 ft pounds and one to 14 ft

pounds but the way it's written in the book I do not which is which. The one that's



tightens on the triple tree or the (as I see it) jammer nut (on top) gets torque the



most.



I hope someonecan tell my I would like to get it back together tomorrow.



Sorry but it's hard for me to tell what I'm trying to say.



Hickey

If I remember it correctly the first nut on gets the 14Foot pounds of torques and the last one on gets sthe 72 foot pounds of torque.

Just looked at the manual and here is what it says.

1. Torque the adjustment nut to 29 foot pounds.
2. Turn the the forks from lock to lock five times
3. Losen the adjustment nut until hand tight the
4. Torgue to 14 foot pounds.

Then repeat steps 2. 3. and 4.

The repeat ssteps 2 and 4.

Install the top of the tripple tree and apply 72 foot pound of torque.

This is how I do mine and I have been doing it for years on my 98 Aspencade.

I reason you turn the forks from lock to lock after you torque to 14 foot pounds is to seat the bearings.
