The best quality bearings you can put in the steering head are the OEM bearings, but be certain that you only use the late version of the upper that has the built in seal (PN 93332-00078-00) AND that you use a Marine grade waterproof grease, AND that you give up the habit of pressure washing around the steering stem.

I've had one set of these in my bike since '07.
