The steering lock pin for the 2018+ Honda Gold Wing is designed so you can check the play in the steering system. The extra play typically comes from the two tie rods or a loose stem nut.
With the locking pin in place the fork assembly and the fork holder assembly are locked in place so you can measure the actually amount of play in the steering components.
Traxxion Dynamics’ Steering Bridge Lock Pins are machined to an extremely tight tolerance of +/- .0002” This allows for the most precise inspection and alignment of your motorcycle.
One pin is required to measure the lash in your right tie rod, and 2 pins are required to align the upper steering bridge to the front fork for perfectly square steering alignment.
