ummm none really...

u can tell if your fork legs have play by grabbing a handful of frt brake...

then put your hand on the lowers... and while holding the brake rock the bike back and forth... if u can "feeel" the fork moving inside, then u have bushing play...

if its a headset problem u shouldnt "feel' anything going on inside the fork...

its sounds kinda odd, but it works...

hope that helps explain it properly...

FuManChu is a n00b; standing by
grab fornt brake and stick your finger inbetween the arch and stantions, this is the easiest way but, kinda awkward. get a buddy to help by holding the bike and rocking it a bit for you while you have your finger inbetween the arch and the stantions right at the seals.


have fun
