  2. Yet more alloy bending . . . . .

    Bodgers Corner
    Having got the Dakar back from youngest son in exchange for my TDM900, I took about the task of cleaning and repainting anything that needed painting. Every bearing has been inspected and either re-greased or replaced if required (headrace and front wheel bearings). Made up a sump guard that...
  3. A great service From Vines Motorad

    Recommended Dealers/Service Providers/Campsites
    I had my bike serviced last Friday and it was discovered that the Headrace Bearings were notchy. Cost of Replacement £200+, I queried the fact that 9000 miles was a short time for the bearings to last under normal conditions, the bike is three months out of warranty. I have just had conformation...
  4. Headrace bearings - Race removal

    Transalp
    I am having some trouble removing the bottom race of the head bearings in my Transalp XL 650. There seems to be a "lip" above it, please see the picture below. http://i.imgur.com/BDvtxWP.jpg The race refuses to move after a whack with a pointed steel bar and a hammer. Does anyone have any...
  5. TA 600 Headrace bearings. What type/size?

    Mechanical Advice
    I'm not talking part numbers: I mean what would be the internationally recognised code number and type for 1993 TA 600 Head race bearings? There are a stack of bearing stockists here and they are cheaper than going Wemoto + P&P or, worse still, buying from Honda. Mine need replacing, and I...
  6. Tiger headrace bearings

    Triumph
    All you Tiger owners out there, have you felt a strange feeling in the steering? A bit nochy? Just not right? Well I did! I decided I couldn't take it any more, it was starting to feel dangerous. I had to inspect the headstock as I was sure there was a problem with the steering but couldn't...
  7. Headrace removal the unorthodox way

    Mechanical Advice
    Hi everyone, Just been doing my headrace bearings on a [email protected] bike (my gpz900r) and I'll tell you what they're a pain in the @r$e to remove. Would you believe that the main two tools in the outer and bottom inner cones were a welder and a grinder. Kymmy :cool:
  8. On the subject of headrace bearings...

    Africa Twin
    ...how tight should they be on an RD03? I think mine are a bit loose after I rebuilt the front end. Wasn't sure how tight they should be. So I decided on 'a bit' as being the perfect setting.
  9. Headrace Bearings???

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Got my RD04 back from the dealer the other day, where I'd had, amongst other things, the head race bearing done. I requested this, because, under braking, I could see quite a lot of movement coming from the head (just under where the big bolt is on the middle of the steering combo)...
