Gents,

So I'm in the process of selling my 01' 12R. Just got it safetied today and it requires new steering head bearings. Still running the original after 20yrs.

What do you guys recommend? Will the "All Balls" tapered bearing kit work or should I stick with OEM(if they even exist anymore)?

Cheers!

I have used All-Balls bearings twice before, and for some reason they never quite fixed the headstem knock/slack. It would work for a while then get slack again. I went back to oem which works fine for me. Now I'm not saying they are no good, just my experience, maybe I did something wrong with installation, but the oem ones are okay. I'm sure others will have good reports about All-Balls.
