:waving:Welcome and Hello . I'll also take a try at writing them for this job.



Tighten the steering stem adjustment nut as follows:

#1 Tighten the adjustment nut to 40-N-m ( 4.0 kg-m , 29 ft lbs )



#2 Turn the steering stem lock to lock five times to seat the bearings



#3Loosen the adjustment nut until it is hand tight .



#4 Then retighten to the specified torque .

Tool: steering stem socket 07916-3710100



Torque : 19 N-m (1.9 kg-m , 14 ft lbs )



Repeat steps 2,3 and 4 above.



Then repeat steps 2 and 4 a third time , ( do not loosen the adjustment nut )





Warning . improper adjustment of the steering stem adjustment nut ( to loose or to tight ) may cause handlebar oscillation , cornering instability , or excessive noise during braking.





Install a new lock washer, aligning the tabs with the nut grooves .

NOTE:Always use a new lock washer.



Hold adjustment nut and hand tighten the lock nut to align its grooves with the lock washer tabs .



NOTE : If the lock nut grooves cannot be easily aligned with the lock washer tabs , remove the nut , and turn it over , and reinstall it .



Bend the other two lock washer tabs up into the lock nut grooves .



Temporarily hold the front fork legs by tightening the lower pinch bolts .



Install the steering top bridge and tighten the steering stem top nut .



Tool : socket , 30 mm



Torque : 100 N-m (10.0 kg-m , 72 ft lbs )



Loosen the lower pinch bolts and install the fork legs (see page 12-19 )





ect , ect .







Thats straight out of my 93 service manual Pages 12-44 and 12-45 .



I see a place or two which to me is a bit vague but this is right from the book .



I think back at #4 when you retighten the first time they want you to torque to the 19 N-m , 14 ft lbs



Also on the lock washer , I believe they want you to bend two tabs down to the adjustment nut , then the other two tabs into the lock nut . Its not how they write it but I think tis how it should be .I hanvent done this job, you have or will be taking yours apart , so note how the lockwasher tabs are originally.



good luck,be safe and ride often:action:

Welcome from the Akron area. If you see someone waving on a black 1500 Interstate it is probably me.
