Question I have the 83Interstate on a lift with the front wheel of the ground and turn the handlebars side to side. As soon as I return to the center position it seems like it grabs slightly. Worn bearings or can I try to lube it up? Thanks for any direction GF

The bearings will wear notches into the races and the only way to fix it is to replace them.

Just FYI, it would be a good idea to pack those bearings with grease before installation. When they come to you they might not have much grease in there.

Yes they do come dry, use boat trailer wheel bearing grease.
