Anybody have experience? Is it really this much of a pain? The cables made taking the fork off really tough. I didn't want the weight of the forks to hurt the cables so i laid them on a table next to the bike. But then i was hesitant to pry off the lower bearings that were stuck to the lower end of the fork stem. I didn't want to damage anything and the bearings looked like new so i put the thing back together. The only time i can tell that the steering wants to fall "into a groove" is off to the right side. And it's barely noticable. I think that the hex nut was just too tight. The bearings felt like a bad notch was in the middle of the steering, now they're alot better. Any insight is appreciated. I needed a new front tire so i'm glad i had to take it apart anyway.
