Yes, just tip it back and check for any slack just like the bikes you worked on. You can push the front forks towards engine and then pull back out and lift up and on the tubes to check for loose bearings there.

Hello!
A couple of Questions for you.

Where are you located?
ARE you looking for stock or a aftermarket?
Do you want to weld a set up yourself from a kit?
Do you have a cb650C

Thanks
Bob
