Try looking for 90890-01403, you know, the other part number.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

I just bought one a few months ago (see pic below) but can't find the link for that one. Google search gets several hits as does amazon search. Search "Yamaha FJR1300 steering stem wrench."

I gave up trying to find one on ebay or amazon and ordered the Yamaha "original" spanner for $50.00 delivered. I know, I know...
I heard that the socket is not true to the torque value since it rests directly on top of the nut. It may be just rumours, though.

It's not rocket science as most people find the spec torque value inadequate anyway.

The socket is tons better ! Seems like I heard that someplace before...

The socket WILL BE the easiest & most accurate means to torque the s-stem nut but the spanner if used at a 90deg angle to your torque wrench can be as well. It all depends on you and your methods. Let me Add that I run my “Alls-Balls”tapered bearings are 18ft lbs instead of the spec’d 13ft lbs so the torque specs are sort of just a suggestion, on the steering head bearings. Your methods have more to do with the torque results than anything else, slow & smooth, keep everything squared up should give the best results.

Is here a reason to NOT use a 36 mm socket?
