Re: steering adjustment - how?
There is nothing that can be adjusted. The lower connection is a ball joint which rarely gives a problem. It CAN be loose though, check that the nut on it is tight. The top is an angular contact ball bearing, non adjustable.
There will always be a slight clearance in the fork slider bushings, but 1/4" at the fork ends is too much.
Don't ride until you check the lower ball joint attachment nut! If that has worked loose (it has happened before) it could cause some real grief later if not caught.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
