ZX6R Steering bearings


Recommended Posts

Sometimes you don't realise how bad the old head bearings are, until you put new ones in...... 8-)

 

It's totally changed the old girl. Forks next :?

 

Did it have a notch or were they just stiff , in other words what prompted you to do it ?

I had a notch,right in the centre, and in slow traffic the front wheel wondered. Was really unsettling.
