8 Assemble top and bottom trees with provided bearing races, and seals, use a waterproof synthetic grease to pack the bearings.
Note: Failure to use the provided bearing assemblies will result in improper installation of the trees.
9 Insert the 5/8 hardened stem bolt and flat washer through the top of top tree. Thread the bolt into the bottom tree assembly by hand until you are sure that the bolt is started straight. Tighten the stem bolt until there is no play in the trees. Now back the stem bolt off a 1⁄2 turn. This allows easier assembly of the forks into the trees.
