I'm looking at buying a 2001 Wide Glide and the seller said it needs a "neck bearing" adjustment. Is a "neck bearing" the same thing as a "steering head bearing"? Is it an easy procedure to adjust them? Is it possible the bearing might need to be replaced if an adjustment wasn't enough? How expensive/involved of a job is that? And is this a common issue on Wide Glides?
I'll throw this out as well for debate:
How safe is the bike to test ride with this 'condition'?
Send it to the dealer for a once over before you buy, and have them render an opinion. Ours charge 1-hour for labor for the look.
If you're happy with the ride, have the dealer make the adjustment.
