Steering head loose as a goose. Torqued it down to seat, and put it at 13 ft/lbs.

Changed the ignition switch and figured it was a good time to do the steering.
Found a bad looking connection and repaired it. Already installed relays to take the ignition currents.

My All Balls tapered head bearing tq is 17 lbs. I started at 25 lbs and it felt like a low tire the way it wandered around (to tight) then backed off to 20 lbs and complete different bike (to the good) then dropped to 17 lbs and works great for me.
