I just bought an r6 race bike. I am completely new to yamahas. My question is in the steering head. When I brake the forks do their jobs, but the triple clamp feels like it shifts forward. I can see that it moves maybe a millimeter from the steering column. Is this normal? Although I highly doubt that it is. I don't have to right front stand to see if there is some movement in the forks. I might just go ahead and tighten up the ring under the big nut on the triple. Any other suggestions? I don't want to do anything unnecessary to the front end, because I know I'll mess something up.

You need to re-torque the steering head bearings.
