Does anyone have a slick way to snug up the steering stem to the proper preload setting of 1.1-1.6 kg(2.4-3.5flbs)? I need to snug it down so I can continue to put my 04 back together. I can probably wing it but if I can get it presice then so much the better. On another note, I remember reading (here?) someone mentioned using PVC pipe as a steering stem bearing driver instead of buying some over priced tool. I just got finished changing steering stem bearings. I used a hammer and chisel to remove the lower bearing like these guys did. http://www.garagenight.tv/ep-5-replacing-steering-head-bearings/ Piece of cake! I used an old Carlisle canoe paddle blade I found at work to drive the lower bearing into position! A perfect(snug) fit around the stem and the same diameter as the inner race(so it wasn't bending the bearing cage). Took the stem/lower Triple Clamp out of the freezer, placed the grease seal and bearing on the stem and placed the paddle blade onto the stem,, against the bearing. Turned the whole thing upside down and about ten easy taps later, on a piece of wood on the bottom of the stem and the bearing was home! I didn't think to take any pics as I was doing this but this is what I'm talking about... The paddle blade shaft... You know what they say about one mans junk!
