Steering Head - How Tight?

(1/4) > >>

Bpreynolds2:
I just greased and replaced the upper and lower tapered bearings on my Ď03 Stone project.  First time doing this kind of work on any bike and putting it all back together, even after watching vids and trying to research on here, Iím confused as to how tight I should go down on the top spanner nut?  Any advice appreciated here.  I first tightened them down very tight to try and set the bearing, then I backed it off but confused how tight it should be.  Should I feel any resistance when turning the tree?  A little resistance?  None?  Is it splitting hairs?  Thanks.

I tighten the stem until it just starts to bind, then back it off a tiny bit.  You want smooth movement with no fore and aft looseness.
