    Please help. I put the bike on the lift and I was giving it the once over before the season gets going. I was checking the front end and when I got to the slider cap nuts they were only slightly tighter than hand tight. I don't know if this is a normal setting or not, but what should they be torqued to? It's a 97 Road King,,, no work done to the forks in the 4 years that I own it, and I put 85 miles on it on sunday and it feels perfect. Straight as an arrow, no vibes at high speed. I snugged them up a little and the wheel spin started to drag a little. How tight are they supposed to be? thanks in advance, yet again.
