    I understand how this question must sound to most of you
    but here goes...........
    I am tightening the "critical fasteners" listed in my service manual.
    I have searched my manual and this forum for over an hour trying
    to be find out where are the
    A) lower fork pinch bolts
    B) upper bracket pinch bolts
    C) riser clamp screws and lock nuts
    I have the exploded view of the front forks on page 2-58 of the
    2004 FLSTC service manual but no where is the term pinch bolt listed.

    Is there a source for complete novices to find out the location of such
    things ?
    While I'm asking stupid questions , on page 1-35 of the service manual ,
    it says to lubricate the steering head bearing with "special purpose grease".
    Is there some maqical quality to this grease or can I use the same stuff
    I grease the wheels/bearings on my mower with ?

    Again, sorry to bother with such questions but any help will be appreciated.
