You might want to loosen your top triple clamp, then crank the nut down. Then retighten the top clamp.

don't go crazy, especially if you use some blue locktite, just decently snug.

Haha... nope, torque it to: 128 N m (13.0 kgf m, 94.4 lbf ft)

After it's snugged up the steering doesn't feel so loose.

NOTE: there are NO nuts on a motorcycle that are SUPPOSED to be loose!
