Help !!!! How do you install lower steering bearing?
Posted March 05, 2004 - 02:49 PM
Being my OEM parts won't arrive until Monday and/or Tuesday, I purchased a Pivot Works bearing kit that is supposed to be for my WR426.
I am having a problem getting the lower bearing to slide down the stem. It doesn't quite make it all the way down. But here is my problem. Towards the bottom of stem, there is a lip type thing that the bearing is supposed to slide onto. By looking at the inner race, there is NO WAY it is going to slide over it. Am I missing something here? Does the outer lip thing bang off prior to sliding the bearing down? The manual isn't very clear on this.
Maybe the bearing wasn't properly packaged???? Should I just freakin wait for the OEM???
Please help a brotha out !!!!! I want to go riding this first non rain weekend.
Thanks Thumperbrothers and Sisters
