Damaged steering head bearing
Posted January 14, 2003 - 04:18 PM
It's not much, but since I have the steering head apart, I'd like to replace the damaged part.
I know that I have to replace this top bearing and outer race as a unit. But before I punch out the top race. Does anybody have info on the outer race specifications? (Height/inside diam/outside diam)
I could take it off the bike, ruining it in the process, and if the new part take forever to get here, there will be a lot of frustration while I wait for it.

I went to my nearby dealer to order the parts. I ordered the outside race for $18.00 cdn, and I'll go to a bearing shop to get the bearing. They're asking $80.00 cdn for a tapered needle bearing. A bit TOOO much I think.
