Re: Slight Knocking On My LT
I think that the steering head bearings aren't a likely suspect. The miles on the bike don't suggest that. But you can put a jack under the oil pan area & elevate the front wheel, then turn the handlebars back & forth to feel for or listen for problems.
I think the Clymer manual may help with some diagnostics. If you don't have one, I can take a look at mine.
Also,have you grabbed your steering damper & given it a good shake to see if it has an issue?
All your tupperware fasteners tight? Hard to say where the knock is coming from at this point.
