Have 2010 1700 voyager. Have death wobble . Have changed front tire tightened triple tree nut to specs.. what else can be the cause?
Special tool... I made my own. Found a piece of pipe about the right diameter, angle-ground & dremelled one end to fit the nut, and sacrificed a socket to tack-weld into the other end....does any body know what size is the steering stem nut??
I made my own, too. I used a 36mm axle nut socket, but a deep well socket would do, too. Saves the step of welding a socket onto a pipe.Special tool... I made my own.

And when you over-tighten it to 41 ft-lb - do not turn the steering at all, or you'll damage the rollers. That's just a torque right up to seat properly, then back it off straight away sort of thing.

The tool is for the locking ring nut. I don't believe a 35 mm would be big enough, but it might. I had a 36 mm socket, and it seemed to be the perfect size against the locking nut off the bike, but it was not deep enough with the nut in place. That is why an axle nut or deep well socket is needed. The locking nut is not a hex nut, but round. You need a tool with teeth to get into the slots in order to turn it.I was checking and found out that the steering nut is 35 mm why did you use a 36 mm ? just a question?
