My 2009 has 15k miles.  I check manually and the steering seems good.  No movement, no clunk, no wobble.  My question is should I do it anyway or wait till I notice something or at 20K miles?  Has anyone had issues with this at 15K miles or even under 20K miles?

Having a tight triple tree does make a huge improvement. The shop in Spokane didn't get the triple tree serviced under warranty and I don't care The bike handles ALOT better now. Partly maybe to a new front tire but I'm happy with it now.

While on a tour through Utah to the Grand Canyon the better half was complaining about head shake on her cruiser. I checked the tire pressure, looked for fork oil leaks, missing bolts and wheel bearing play.
All looked good so I told her she (as usual) packed too much and it was not loading the front tire enough. We got home and it still had head wag un-loaded....her steering head nuts were loose. :-[  :truce:

Tightened the steering head bearing- great improvement in the handle bars- less vibration!
Big THANKS to Tom
