Next Stupid Question

Are the Steering Bearings as greaseless as my rear wheel bearings were?

I haven't taken a looksee yet. But I will soon, when I receive my Scott's Damper and do the install. Anyway, for those who've looked, what kind of shape were your Steering Bearings in? What manner of evil is hiding in there?


p.s. FWIW...lousy, worn, or bad steering bearings can cause the front end to shake, rattle, & roll. Its one of many possible sources for shimmy up front (for those who may be troubled by that). As far as my front end, she's rock solid at any speed. No shaking, no drifting, no light feeling. Runs on "rails" with the stock Scorpion tires. Knobs are still waiting on deck....
