Steering is locked (KLX300)

Recommended Posts

Ok need some help here. I currently have the bike on a stand and I just finished putting the new shift star on. Got it all back together and removed it from the lift and the handlebars won't turn left and right. It's like the steering column has been locked with a key.

What the heck is going on? Does anyone have any ideas?

I'm guessing that since I washed it before putting it on the stand for a couple of weeks that it just seized on me. Especially with the weather turning cold all of a sudden. Gonna spray some silicone up under the seal and try to get it moving again.

Probably need to take the steering stem/clamps off and repack or replace the bearings.
