Hey all,

A friend of mine is doing a frame-off after a pretty horrible crash (bike walked out on him doing a wheelie at 60 mph) and he noticed the bearing that holds the bottom of the steering stem is a goner...

The bearing is held in place by a ring with an inner hex form.. we don't have any tools that would work for that as far as we can figure.. Does it require a special tool from Yamaha, or is there some generic tool that will work for this? What size is it?

While we're at it, anyone have any idea how much that bearing costs and what the part number is?

Thanks!

hello mate,

Hope your friend is ok after the crash.

To get the hex ring thing out weld a couple of M20 (30mm AF) nuts together one goes in the hex ring, the other fits your socket.

The bearing is a 6203 2RS, rather than get one form Yamaha, you should be able to get a quality (SKF or similar) bearing from your local bearing/engineering supplier for less. The seals are pretty cheap from Yamaha so I went with them, but here's the sizes anyway,

25x36x8 and 25x44x6 double lip seals.
