Steering knotch / head bearings ?
I’ve only got 1700 miles on my CPX and it’s developed a steering knotch where it wants to sit in the straight ahead position, I believe this is the head bearings that have worn ? Is this usual and does anyone know which is the correct part for replacement ?

It could be something else also. It happened to me today. I would look at the front brake and se if the brake is touchwood. If not I would look and se if the nuts have moved from the color markings and then tighten the two nuts if needed.
sure, thanks for the comments, but I tested by lifting the front wheel off the floor and it does stick when it's straight ahead, must be the bearings, frustrating as its so new. My mechanic says its a bit of a pain to replace, might just see how it goes as its not too bad currently. The dealer I bought it from didn't want to know since I didn't take the bike for it's first service. I've had loads of motorbikes, probably half a dozen new bikes, and whilst most of the rest went for a first service, its unlikely they did much to the head bearings after 600 miles, usual story, any excuse, it's a 'wearable item' that apparently only lasts 1700 miles !
