drl650 According to the instructions in the box. The TR has a groove in them that allows grease to pass If grease does not pass ROTATE the rod end around until the grease groove opens up as shown in pic #3. You rotate thru the bottom of the TR where it is not threaded or stick a small screw driver thru the cotter hole. I could rotate the other ones they were hard but they rotated? I finially got the passenger side to rotate after I ate my wheaties.lol.. I did that put one pump of grease and did a toe in alignment it is now nice and firm not extreamly tight. Will take out tomorrow for some test riding before my 35s arrive on Monday.

Yes, after installing mine, the steering was much tighter and I love it.

Imped It's not supposed to turn or move easily....at all....that cotter hole will end up where it ends up. That's the sign of a good TRE. The only thing I can think of is you overgreased it.....have you greased it or not? The tolerances are too tight in Currie TRE's to pump more than an initial squirt into them. Otherwise instead of the grease pumping through the joint and out, it'll just blow the socket.

drl650 I took it apart and the passenger side tie rod is frozen? I can not turn it to move the carter key hole? it is very very hard to even move? But will not spin at all?

Imped RTC isn't related to the steering linkage so that's just a coincidence.

As for tight steering, would you rather have the alternative? That's what you get with big, new TRE's and solid, unflexible linkages.
