I went to change out my steering bearings last night. What huge pain in the ass! I hate the engineers at yamaha right now, Ill probably never buy another yamaha anything ever again. The steering head race seats dont have an access to remove them. All you get is maybe a single mm worth of the race to try to get them out. My Honda had a scallop cut into the seat so you could access the bottom of the race with a drift. No so on the yamaha. There is absolutley no excuse for something like this. Im am really pissed off. Now instead of riding, I get to cut a bearing race out of the steering head. Have you ever tried to cut a bearing race? These things are really really hard! Man Im pissed I did this job on my honda in 10 mins. Ive got 3 hours on this and Im not even half way done It crap like this, that spoils a brand for me. Sorry guys, with all its faults, my next bike will be red.
