Problems installing All Balls tapered bearings!!!
I am in the middle of installing All Ball bearings on my 06 600rr. I got off the old race off and pressed the new tapered bearings down the steering stem. Then placed the stem in the frame then torqued the nut down that takes the special tool.
Now here's the problem, after putting that special nut on there is a locking nut and locking washer that are to go on but I don't have any threads showing for them to grab. There is a gap between the top and bottom of the neck of the frame where both bearing sets go on. Everything seems to be fitting where it needs to go so what is wrong? Am I not suppose to use the lock nut any more or did I maybe press the stem out the bottom of the lower triple tree a little when i pressed the new lower bearing on maybe?
