Its actually better to feel the bearing instead of doing a fixed torque amount. When you swap it all out lift the front end and turn the front end back and forth tilll it gives little drag but not to much.

SUZUKI DOES MAKE THE SOCKET YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. THE PART # IS IN THE SERVICE MANUAL. YOU LOCAL SUZUKI SHOP CAN GET IT FOR ABOUT 90 BUCKS BUT ONCE YOU SEE IT YOU COULD TAKE THE PIC AND DIMENSIONS FROM YOU BIKE AND GET ONE MADE FOR ALOT LET. AND DO TORQUE IT TO THE SPECIFIC TOURQUE BECAUSE IF YOU JUST TIGHTEN IT BY FELL YOU COULD GO TOO TIGHT OR NOT TIGHT ENOUGH. UNLESS YOU HAVE A CALIBRATED ARM AND I HAVENT SEEN ONE OF THOSE YET.

K&L Supply makes a nice unit, its adjustable to fit many differant bikes.
$ 60.00 if I remember right. Its designed for steering head bearing adjustment.
Check with your local dealer. If you cant find it, 'Ping' me and Ill get you the part number.
Regards~ Jim
