Hello guys quick question.
My front got loose yoke. I decided to change bearings for my rd04. Bought new ones but they aren't ball bearings like in my bike but in description was exactly to fit my bike. Do they really fit?

The top yoke on my '03 alp is scabby, so I want to clean it up and refinish it. It looks to me as if I first take off the handlebars and chock the front end, I should be able to remove the yoke without disturbing any thing else , except, what should I do about the steering lock/ignition switch...
