TwoBeers Posted June 23, 2021 Share Posted June 23, 2021 I have 2021 Tenere 700 with 2000 miles on it. Recently it developed a metal to metal clunk in the front end. It was very pronounced on abrupt hits like tree roots or square edge ruts. I subsequently discovered that the Steering Stem Nut was only finger tight and since the hole in the upper bracket is actually larger than steering stem there is movement when the nut is not tight. So I assume the nut was never torqued to spec from the factory or dealer. Since I was already in maintenance mode I went ahead and greased the steering head bearings and torque the steering stem nut to 110 lb-ft on reassembly. Problem solved. 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
