STEERING...BEARINGS
« on: 28 July, 2015, 04:48:32 PM »
Hello  everyone...
The time has arrives for chanhing the steering bearing...top and bottom.
I am doing some research for aftermarket products as KOYO or PYRAMID.
Any suggestions will be welcomed...plus i need to verify the numbers for the bearings

TOP BEARING 47 X 26 X 15 BOTTOM BEARING 55 X 30 X 17 ???

The numbers aren't in the service manual and i had to track them according to model through ebay.
Are they correct ??

Thanks in advance

Yes, from a previous post on this forum (you'll note that some users recommend Taper / Tapered Roller type*, instead of the original fitment Ball type)....

I use these and buy for here.

Better than Standard Honda bearings they last longer.

The bike feels better through the bars.

By the way, this is what Wemoto offer for CBF1000....

I don't know the Dimensions and I've never really bothered.

All I know is they work.

I know I wouldn't pay over £60  for Honda's Head bearings.

If you think your bike handles OK with the OEM ones you are wrong.

I have fitted 5 sets of Honda Ones and they all fail quick,If you use the bike and do mileage.
Most people don't check their headset.
 
The Honda ones are also hard to adjust down as you can over tighten them without really knowing then they wear quicker.

Fitting tapered ones are 100% better ,easy to fit and adjust correctly and out last Honda parts.

All I can tell you is ALL BALLS part number =  22-1020

Here is a link http://www.allballsracing.com/22-1020.html

They also answer any email's you send them.

If you have never fitted a set of head bearings it can be a bit daunting as you need to remove the lower pressed bearing cup from the bottom of the steering stem and the easiest way is to grind a split in it and split it with a cold chisel.

Removing the cups and fitting the bearings are not hard if you have the tools.

I use a modified long wide screwdiver to remove the cups but these work.

Refitting is easy to and there are many youtube's showing you how to adjust ect.

But I have one of these its quicker and easy to use.
