Hi Guys,

Can someone assist me in finding the required bearings I need to replace for "Notch" issue?
a link will be just fine.
Do you think I should replace the main steering as well?
I'll be using this thread and of course the service manual.
How to remove the steering tapered bearings

Thanks,

Eran.

HI Eran.

Here's the link. See the post, with photos, by CheekyThomas

Notch Bearing Part Numbers

Make sure you do the grease bolts as well.

Thanks a lot Gonzo
I've just ordered the left and right bearings.
Did you bleed the brakes in the old fashion way - top up the oil and pumping the breaks until all the air is bails out through the caliper?

Thanks again,

Eran.

I haven't had to bleed the brakes. There's plenty on this forum who have. Do a search. From what I've read the pressure type units which feed up from the caliper are preferred.

Don't forget about the grease bolts. MJM50CAL has some for sale.

I would love to go. The problem is that my wife won't let me go Crying or Very sad emoticon . She will argue: "You prefer riding your scooter than spending time with your family".

I'm trying to get her following us with the car... we'll see.

why follow she can ride behind you. And if you have kids what a great opportunity for Grand parents to have them for the weekend bonding time
The adults could have a nice mini time away, kick up the heals, relax, and do your bonding as well
