Anyone crack this piece? This happened the other day and just found it.
Quick fix? Or forget it and ride until a new one comes?

And I find that nut at the bottom of the post loose which must have allowed a little flex on that mounting point. I should have checked the steering bolts for tightness some rides back.

Another couple rides in and The steering continues to loosen every ride as the day progresses.
Seems like the bolts that support all the upper framing are loosening causing side to side movement.


Anyone know how tight these 2 bolt should be? They’re wiggly, I can tighten them and it seems like there’s some sort of keeper in inside the tubes they tighten onto. I just don’t want to crank on them too much.
