    loose headset of haro x6

    How to know if my headset is slightly loose and how to fix it, does it require for my new haro x6 to be brought to a bike mechanic for them to make things properly tighten?

    Loosen up your stem bolts a little bit (the ones on the side of your stem, not the front).

    Tighten down the headset bolt (the single bolt that sits on top of your stem/headset cap). You want to tighten down just enough to take the looseness/play out of it, but not so tight that you feel like the movement is tight and restricted.

    Straighten out your stem/bars, and tighten the stem bolts back down.

    Many dealers will do minor adjustments to new bikes they have sold free of charge or at discounted rates. It may not be a bad idea to look into what their policy is for stuff like this.

    The one to tighten the last are the two bolts in the sides of the stem right?

    Yep.
