Motorcycle Steering Head Bearings The steering head bearing has a major influence on a motorbike's handling. So a damaged bearing is a serious safety risk. If you can move the front wheel back and forward when it is not under any load, or if you can feel the steering catch slightly in the central position, that means it's time to change the steering head bearing. At Louis you can get high-quality taper roller bearings for the steering head at bargain prices. Tip: Take a look at our "Tips for DIY mechanics" at www.louis.de.
