Gl1100 steering stem bearings

Hi,couple of questions about fitting new bearings,there is no mention that I can see about fitting a grease seal to the upper bearing,item 9 on this page.Does it sit under the bearing as in this schematic ?
I also can't find any mention of the size of socket needed to be adopted to make a suitable tool for tightening the top bridge nut,the one that gets lots of pressure to lock everything together,it is smaller than the bottom nut.I managed to get the larger one from a guy who makes them on ebay along with a socket for the swingarm. ... ml#results
