Soooo Nooowwww ya want me help eh!

Well Just becouse I am a nice guy I will tell ya

Bearings and Races are shot!

I took the bearings & races out, cleaned them (Ultra Sound clean warm solvant tank).

After I got em clean I looked at them real close and found the races actually were warn to a point of high and low points. It looks like shadows in the bright sun. You will notice a duller look on the high sides.

about 100 bucks to fix..... No Mo gyro...... :)

A HUNDRED BUCKS FOR HEADSTOCK BEARINGS? or did you get the ultra trick titanium bearings that save 1.2 grams? Just kidding. The hundred bucks blows my mind though, I did the headstock bearings on my cr500 cost me 12 bucks for both!

Ego- I will be replacing the bearings on my 01 shortly and am curious how hard it is to remove the lower bearing? I do not have any fancy tools in the way of air chisels or presses but I do have a standard chisel and hammer. Will that work as the manual states?

I can look at the invoice but it was like 26.78 bucks a peice for the bearings and 16 or 20 something for the races

Its not hard, if you a queessie the I suggest bring it down to the nearst bike shop / machin shop they can pop it of in seconds for a few bucks.

As long as its not rusted or camoded up, you can get a couple of good pry bars under it and with even pressure should slide off with no worries....

I actually use some old fashion brake adjusters for a chevy pickup........ They are durable enough and have the right angle to slip right under the botom bearing
