Ever had it off before? (so to speak)
2-3 times a week with my wife( except at the moment, its too ****en hot ) but we have been together for 14 years:OEver had it off before? (so to speak)
It's the top nut - I need the top plate off. I'm either drilling it for risers and fat bars, or replacing it altogether.WHICH "steering stem head nut"? The one for the upper triple clamp, one of the two for the bearing adjustment, or the one on the TLR which retains the steering head tube so it can be replaced with an offset version for racing?
That would normally just be the one that retains the upper triple clamp, and should come off pretty easily (should have a flat washer under it I think). Did you already remove the fork legs or put the bike on a front stem stand so that nut isn't still supporting the bike (assuming lower triple pinch bolts are loose)? BTW Van has some pretty replacements.
Careful with those they have red thread lock on em. Make sure you've got plenty of room ... I used high quality torx socket on an extension..... Now the security torx bolts for the ignition are stuck - I'll soak them WD40 over night ...
That is very sexy. Unfortunately this is a re-use, recycle and fabricate, budget build. I've just gone back to school to retrain for a career in automotive engineering, so I may try more of the latter myself as I progress.You can put a real nut back on.
Well done you! Takes courage to go back in order to go forward. :thumbup... I've just gone back to school to retrain for a career in automotive engineering .....
Cheers mate. It is gonna be hard to go to a student income for a year. (mind you a student year is about 6 months in real-time:laugh) But the result is 18mnths knocked off an apprentiship, which is pretty certain at the end if you work hard.Well done you! Takes courage to go back in order to go forward. :thumbup
