Are we there yet?
While I have my bike down for winter maintenance I wanted to recheck the torque on the all balls I installed last winter after 21k miles. I pulled the top plate off and carefully removed the jam nut as to not disturb the torque setting of the bearings. When I installed the bearings I set the torque to 27 pounds and locked it down. I started with the torque wrench set to 15 pounds and very carefully check the torque. Click, no movement of the nut. I then raised the torque in 1 pound increments till the nut moved. Finally at 21 pounds I got movement. So, I am taking from that there was still 20 pounds of torque on the bearings. Here is the part that burns me up about all this. I have a very bad indent in the straight ahead position. Much worse than the stock bearings had at 54k miles. Why? Anyone else notice this?
