08 450, I took the steering apart to grease the steering head. When I was tightening the top steering head bolt I heard a pop, like someting broke. I took the top nut off and it looks fine. the steering stem looks fine looking at the threads. I have not taken the whole thing apart yet Any ideas if I screwed up bad.

There may have been something not lining up and it just popped into place with the force you were putting on it.
