I had my front wheel of the ground the other day and notice the wheel kept going to the left . My Service manual Indicates a loose bearing . I tried to buy a adjustable pin spanner and could not find one at the auto supply store .Has anyone tried to use the rear shock pin spanner in the tool kit for a fit on the bearing nut. I would hate to take the front cover of ,if I don't have a pin spanner to do the job.

There are several posts on-line for DIY steering stem tools. Many of which use cut down larger diameter deep sockets or sections of galvanized steel plumbing pipe.

Time to hit the Flea Markets

That said, you might check with Honda for their tool price. Sometimes, "sometimes", their Special Tool prices are quite reasonable.

I do not think this is a problem unless you have some other symptom, for instance generally loose searing. The brake caliper is on the left side and may be enough to pull the steering to the left when the front wheel is off the ground.The stem bearings (on the S/W) are ball bearings and do not require a heavy preload. A spring scale is used for this adjustment.

I manage to tighten the bearing using The shock pin spanner ,and using a fish scale on the fork nut for adjusting the weight pressure .I repaired a broken tab that fell to the ground when i removed the screw .I will finish putting everything back together tomorrow.
