My Kawi is one month old and since I first got I notice that there is some play in the steering when you turn the handlebars right to left. The tires will still turn with the slightest movement of the bars, even with the stem play (which is weird) but I just want to know if this is normal or is there a problem? I have heard a few horror stories with people having issues with the steering stem (usually up and down movement instead of side-to-side play) and had to replace a part for $90, but I hope this is not the same issue. Please let me know.

The stem pivots on a ball joint($90) and it develops slop quickly. I actually bought the part a year ago and still haven't put it on. I know it will just do the same exact thing.
