Need quick help for my 1150

I'm getting the pig cleaned up for a ride tomorrow and while I'm washing it, I notice that the top of both forks can be rotated by hand. Are these supposed to be tight? If so, How?

Likely your spindle nuts (under the plastic caps) need to be torqued.

They do rotate. The nut secures the fork to a bearing.
