I feel your pain. But I can tell you why they had to do it. Due to the amount of flex that this chassis has, they needed to use a balljoint type [which pivots in all directions] to keep it from binding. It would be very possible for the stem to bind if they just had a bushing. Its the price we have to pay for new technology I suppose.Our good friends at Stealyourmoneyasaki decided to use a ball joint as opposed to a bushing for the lower steering stem pivot. 84 bucks for this item from the dealer. Kill me.... I ordered a new one under protest.
