Hi Fellow XRV enthusiasts.

Most of you are probably on your bike today as glorious weather but hopefully someone around to ask:)

Replaced Headstock bearings on my RD04 (AT) and failed to make sufficient notes for reassembly. If anyone has a reassembly diagram then grateful, if not then good old general knowledge that you would like to share around headstock assembly will do to:)

First question, should the lip on the nut face upwards or downwards?
Second how tight (torque or estimated) should the nut be fastened not to damage bearings but still be tight enough?

Grateful for help:) Hoping to have bike on road for June but going slow at the moment.

Hi. You`ve probably figured it out by now. But in my logical opinion, the lip should face downward towards the bearing.
That would be the norm for any nut and counternut for adjusting and obtaining bearing play and securing it.
So I guess Honda would do it the same way.
