Steering head bearings.
 
Looked every where but cant find an alternative bearing part number. Dont want to pay for genuine if possible, So, any one got a SKF or similar bearing number ?

Cheers !

Go to the mooseracing.com website. They sell a kit for reasonable price. Possibly CJdesigns too, but not sure, can't remember. Big on line houses should have access to the mooseracing part numbers too.

In my experience these can be hard to find over the counter at bearing houses because of a non-std ID or OD, can't remember now (tequila will do that), but its not you and your searching! Edit: oh i see you are in OZ, no wonder you are having a problema.

+1 on the Moose. My local KTM dealer stocks these.
If yours doesn't they are in the dealer's aftermarket catalogs.

I don't like tequila, so I found them readily available at the local bearing house. :D

Edit: I should mention that these two numbers L45449/L45410 make up one bearing.

I have watched only the steering head video, and I found it to be informative and well presented.

I don't know about anything else they have done.

rossguzzi 12-17-2012 05:37 PM

I eventually found the info I was after. Those guys are a little rough !

Thanks for your input.
Cheers.

KTM only has one bearing for all models. It should be easy to find a kit.

Removed my steering head bearings for maintenance and found a rubber o-ring on top of the top bearing, it was like broken and sliced. After a quick look at it and the bearing I was asking myself; why does somebody placces a o-ring on that spot, does it suppose to be there.
I'm asking this because the edges of the bearing are to sharp for a o-ring to be there.

Can some-one tell me the contents for only the top steering head bearing?

Cheers

Dennis Kirk has the Moose bearings. I just installed some in my 250. It was very easy. https://www.denniskirk.com/moose/ste...prd/505750.sku

Here's a better video. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=363572

In the video, the guys reuse the old race to seat the new lower bearing. Instead, I used a large nut with a 1 1/4 inside diameter that slide over the stem to seat the new lower bearing. It was my first time doing a set of steering bearings and it was a piece of cake.

The top seal isn't a standard o-ring, it's a special seal, and yes there is a slit in it most likely to help it compress and seal better when the steering head nut it tightened.

If you buy an aftermarket steering head bearing kit both the top and bottom seals are included.
