Any input appreciated. Today when I took a short ride on my K1600GT I noticed a small amount of looseness in the steering, as in I could turn the bars left and right about a centimetre and there was a clunk , I continued riding but chose to come back home. I thought I'd check the nut that holds the handlebars on and it was loose, I tried tightening it but no sooner would I feel a little tightness when the nut would turn freely, so I took the nut off to find it stripped. I got a replacement nut from the local nut and bolt shop and when putting it on was getting some tension when all of a sudden, loose again, upon further inspection the thread on the steering stem was also stripped. I removed the washer and was able to grab a few more threads with the nut, so I was able to park my bike up while I wait for replacement parts. So I'll be ordering the steering stem, and all necessary bits such as new bearings etc. I noticed the other day when cleaning the bike that there was a slight clunk when pushing the front wheel back and forward, doing a google search back then there were a few posts about a tie rod problem. So should I order a tie rod at the same time and do everything in the one hit? that is my first question. Second question is does the bearing on the steering stem require pressing on as I can not find any information about it on the net, and third question can someone send me any information about replacing the steering stem let alone how to remove it. Any suggestions and input will be greatly appreciated..
