Thank you for all the replies guys
Dave, I have a decent set of spanners and torque wrench and the normal tools. I was wondering if there are any specialized tools. I have had a bit of a closer look at the Clymer manual, and I suppose the only special tool is a Stem Nut wrench. I was thinking of buying a DRC STEERING STEM WRENCH, but I am not sure if it will fit. Has anyone used one on a later model KLR? Dave, I will take your advice on the Bel-Ray water proof grease. Is Bel Ray OK for both the steering stem and the swing arm etc.?
Paul, I have to agree with you. I would not feel comfortable if I did not grease the Steering stem. Greasing the stem allows for inspection of the parts as well as adding lubricant. I think will not add Zerks. They are a good idea, but i would worry that grease is not getting everywhere that it should. Also, greasing in the conventional way allows for inspection of the parts.
I apologize if I seem to be slow to reply. I live up here at the top of the world in Australia, I'm asleep while you guys are online, and I dare say visa versa
Thanks again for your help guys
