I know this has been covered in detail I would just like to see what % of owners have this problem.

I have heard of this front end clunk everyone talks about and have yet to experience it on my DX at 2000 miles.

My WG had it bad from the get go. I'm hoping to get lucky but this post will probably jinx it. :D

Do you clunk or don't you? Yes, No or I used to....if you have managed to get rid of it how did you do it?

I had it severly on the 03,an eighth of a turn on the top nut after it was set to 03 manual specs and it was gone.I had the neck bearings replaced at around 26k miles and asked the tech to use the same procedure.The clunk has not returned.
The 07 hasn't got any front end clunk what so ever,the nut is still at the factory setting.

Only on the huge bumps, think I am going to put SE fluid in soon.

I thought it was an R inverted fork problem, but tightening my fork (castle) nut solved everything.
