you just gotta find the bal between too tight and too loose if its too loose there you will feel play when rocking the bars forward and back if its too tight spin the bars you feel binding you sould be able to spin the bars and they feel free smile

Tighten each bolt evenly and make sure the face plate is even on the bottom and top, don't tighten 1 bolt as much as you can and proceed to do the same with every other bolt or it will come loose and could slip while riding.
