Part: Tapered Roller Steering Bearing Kit for Honda CB175 / CL175 / SL175 / CB200 / CL200 motorcycles
Why You Need This: There is a new steering bearing kit in town. Treat your Honda CB200 or CL175 Scrambler to the higher performance tapered roller bearings. The original ball style steering (headset) bearings have probably never been serviced since your Honda CL175 / CB200 rolled off the factory floor. A new set of steering bearings will make your motorcycle's steering smoother and predictable under all road conditions. Our steering bearing conversion kit replaces the ball style headset bearings and races with tapered roller bearings. The Steering Bearing Kit comes with both upper and lower bearings and races along with dust shields and spacers.
Installation Tip: The original ball races will have to be removed from the frame and triple tree stem before installing the tapered roller set. A long punch and stout hammer will make this much easier. Pack bearings well with grease prior to installing. A shim spacer washer is used under the lower steering bearing and seal. Use the thinner of the two spacers on Honda applications, the small-diameter washer is not used. The bearings will have to be readjusted (typically gently tightened) after the first ride as the parts settle and the steering will feel looser than previously.
