I have been riding for 30 years and owned over 25 motorcycles and have never had any problems with servicing and adjusting the steering head. I have a Y2K Honda XR 600 and a 97 XR 650L and have never had any issues with adjustment of the steering head. Is there a specific process for the WR?? I know free play is not good for the bearings---Should I leave the 1/8 free play??

After re-assembling the unit with correct grease, I was able to tighten the bearing so there is no free play and no binding. It pays to do it right the first time!
