TTR125 Steering Issues

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a used 2002 TTR125 off Craigslist.  It appears that it is slightly "pointed to the right" when riding, as well as the steering seems VERY stiff while moving.  The weird part is that when sitting still, it moves free as a bird and appears to have no issues.

 

Does that make any sense to anyone?  I have the manual so I *think* I know what to do to dismantle and check the bearings and what not - but I figured I'd ask you guys since it's confusing to me the difference between when it's sitting still and while driving.

 

Thoughts?  Should I just take it apart and grease the bearings and/or possibly replace?

Buying a used 12-year-old dirt bike practically assures you'll be taking it apart to lube/replace/correct/de-goober lots of things.

+1, similar issue, way back, on my '03's steering head bearing, it was about 2yr's old  then, IIRC.
