Is this steering stem toast?

This is off a KLX 110. I'm going to upgrade to a set of All Balls. But I'm concerned about the stem wear from the ball bearings not being taken care of. The threads are in good shape, just some grooves from the loose bearings.

I have this in the KLX forum but no opinions :thumbsup:

Thanks!

I would replace that if it was mine.

if you are that concerned take some jb weld and a towel and well fix it fill the marks and smooth it with the towel

That is a bad idea.

I would either get a new one or run that one if you can tighten the slop out of it.

sorry i didnt know i thought it was a good idea because it gets the slop out i removed that

replace it and make sure the ' all balls ' kit has decent dust seals .

Do some of the all balls kist have bad seals?
