Over long years of service, ball bearings wear out, accumulate dirt, get out of round, rust, and become pitted, making your bike more difficult to steer and less safe on the road. Our Caged Ball Steering Bearings will restore your Honda to its factory specifications for smooth steering. Unlike factory ball bearings that are often loose, our CMC caged bearing set keeps the balls securely in place, making servicing and replacing them easier, and comes with both upper and lower bearings and races.
You must remove the original ball races from the frame and triple tree stem before installing the new bearing set. Use a long punch or flathead screwdriver for removal, ensuring even driving out of the races. Be cautious when removing the lower inner race to avoid damaging the dust seal. Test fit all components before greasing and pay attention to the orientation of the inner races and bearings. Pack bearings and outer races with high-quality wheel bearing grease before final installation. Follow the factory Honda service manual for bearing play adjustment and top triple tree nut torque value.
