I want to give Lance a public kudo! This man rocks!
He has in-depth knowledge of all the moto systems and thinks out of the box!
Just as important, he goes the extra mile to share his knowledge and help!!!!
I followed his suggestions given via telephone to tighten the bottom allen bolt: (He's helped me overcome a crisis via telephone on several other occasions!)
* compress the forks with tie-down straps
* use heat to disolve the loctite applied the previous night
* use an allen socket on my rachet to quickly turn the bolt
* final tighten with torque wrench
Even though I spent a few well-invested $ on tools, heat gun, etc. it's still MUCH cheaper than 2 or 3 hours labor at Ma Kawi's $80/hour rate!!!
My Thanx to Lance and each of you who responded!!
