My first guess was wrong, the front end wobble was not caused by the headset. It was the result of a loose connection in the steering linkage not the headset. Tightening the steering bar mounting bolt made the wobble go away.
The steering bar still moves freely but the bar doesn’t move up and down anymore. Nice simple fix and something to put on my list of thing to keep an eye on.
I know, I have said check every fastener every month and that covers this problem. It is just I need to look at this one a little differently than I have in the past. This bolt felt tight because the nut has a nylon insert. I need to check for steering bar movement not a loose nut.
