Has anyone else swapped out you old bars for the CP Punishers and noticed that the steering is to loose?
I changed my steering bearings and then a month later changed out to the CP bars and now it just seems it’s to easy to steer... I think I am going to have to take it apart and torque it down more.

I think the new bars and the looseness is coincidence. After I changed my stearing bearings, they needed one more adjustment after about 2 months. I think this is very common. After the one adjustment, they should be fine for several thousand miles or when routine service calls for it to be checked.

The Easier steering could just be the way it feels with your arms in a new position. If you think it is more than that pop the to and recheck the torque not that hard of a job.

i noticed my bike felt soooooooo much more nimble once i had installed my punishers
i did have a vibration but once i got the bearings changed it went away completely
i dont know how to check the bearings but in my case i know it was the bars that made it handle much better
