Steering stem tightness ......

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how tight to have the steering stem? just regreased stem bearings cuz it was very sticky/hard to turn when on stand and riding:bonk:

maybe nut was a little tight too but question is ...how tight to have it?

on the stand the stem turns very easy ... will stay in center but if move a little it falls to that side ....

how do others run there steering?

thanks 👍

it should be just tight enough when moved off center it doesn't slap to the stops

Yep. Slight resistance to "falling to the stops" is as tight as it should be. 👍
