Re: What does this nut do ?
Whoa dude. That fuckers under serious pressure. If you would turned that loose you woulda got a mouth full of "what the fuck just happened"...
Get a service manual, Google it. you can probably find a free one.
Watch a YouTube video. Something. Taking the top triple off requires some specific steps. It's not just pop it off, pop it back on. Your dealing with neck bearings, proper torque settings, and the forks. That is an integral part of the motorcycle. One of the most important parts of the whole.
Having said all that, I'm under the assumption "taking the bars off should be as easy as taking a bolt out, and removing the controls. The fact that your trying to unscrew the fork cap tells me your either trying to take the clip ons off by way of the whole assembly ie: top triple clamp
...or you really aren't sure how to get the handle bars out.
Either way. Take a minute and do some research. Not trying to be a dick but thats the LAST thing you want to touch for either job
