My dads 96cr250 has some really stiff steering. The bars have a decent(noticible) amount of resistance when you turn them. Could the bearings just need a relube or could they be roasted? I want to inspect them. How much do you tighten the bolt that requires a spanner wrench to remove? Ive read you need to just finger tighten it. Is this true? Also what is the torque value for the big bolt under the handlebars? Is 65ft/lbs correct?
