Mine were adjusted at the first service after I felt they were a bit loose.
Since then I have checked them twice.
The first time I just tensioned the upper nut to specs & that tightened the steering up a bit.
Some time later I actually adjusted them properly as well. There was no noticeable freeplay in the bearings or clunking, but the effort to turn the bars was a bit light, so I adjustment them until it was 'right'.
>I'm just wondering if the factory recommendation
Dont know what that is.
>If you did have them done did you notice any >difference??
Not as loose/light in the front end.
Feels more stable & "better".
