SumoX triple trees

I installed their 6 over triple trees and used their bearings, but there is still movement in the neck. If i push off and hit the front brake you can still feel movement from front to back. Obviously that's not good, but is it going to cause big damage?

Yeah it will, if you ride it that way it will for sure mess with your handling let alone take a chance on cracking the steering head bearings or races and, distorting them,are you sure you have your top nut tourqed down properly,makes a huge difference on how tight or how loose your steering head bearings are.,greatly affects your handling.
