Straight vs tapered steering stem for 05 yz450f triples?

1 post in this topic

This might be an odd question but I am looking for a straight center steering stem for the triple tree of a 05 YZ450f. 


Mine is tapered but I am planning on putting these forks on a different brand of motorcycle and a traight steering stem would let me put the bearings in a different location along the stem without using a spacer. 


Is there anywhere I can buy a straight stem?  I'm going to press out the old one today (for other reasons besides the straight vs tapered issue). 


thanks in advance.
