This kit updates the plain ball bearings with heavy duty taper bearing replacements. A must do with any suspension upgrade or tune. Helps eliminate head shake, provides better feel than OEM ball bearings and requires less maintenance than stock ball bearings. Kits come complete with both upper and lower taper bearing cups and cones and seals. There are 2 fitments available:
Model 1 – for all bikes that already have tapered bearings in them – Monsters prior to 2002 along with ’91-07 750ss/sport and 900SS, and the 851/888 Superbike.
Model 2 – for all Superbikes up to but not including the 1199, all Monsters 2002-current and Monster S4, S2R, S4R, S4RS from 2001 to present, all ST2/ST3/ST4, all Multistrada’s, Hypermotard, all sport classics including Mh900e, Streetfighters.
NOTE1: When installing Model 2 bearings, install the lower triple rubber seal with the lip pointing downward. If you fail to do this the rubber seal with foul with the lower race and it will disintegrate and destroy the lower race. Don’t send me an email asking why or how. If you don’t want to take my recommendation, you’re on your own.
