But wondered if there were any other models that owners knew of that shared the same yoke.? Should be the same on the V50 from '77-'84. Also the V35 II. Used parts suppliers are out there - or ebay.,

How to tighten steering head bearings on a 1999 yamaha r1

place the machine on a stand, suport the front of the machine so you can turn the steering freely from lock to lock and geting a feel for how tight the bearing is before adjusting or even undoing the top nut, grasp the forks at the bottom as you kneel in front of the machine pulling on the forks at the lowest point to feel for free play, normaly detect by a small amount of movment,or a clicking noise

tightening the steering head bearing on any bike is not difficult, but it does require some level of skill, undo the top nut on the centre of the yoke, below that you will see 2 castleated nuts some models have a locking tab between them so you cant turn 1 without first undoing the other, in this case it is best to remove the top yoke, once you can turn the nuts under the yoke you simply turn clockwise to tighten and anti to slacken,

there is a fine line between tight and slack, a bearing which has been left in a loose state for a prolonged period may require replacing, as so 1 that feels rough or notchy,

in some cases only a small amount of tightening is required, remeber when the top yoke is replaced and tightened this will put more tension on the bearing, so a bearing that feels tight without the top nut tightened will be overtight when yoke centre nut has been tightened, method of satifaction is when the top nut is tight with the steering clear of the ground in a straight ahead position the handlebars must fall from centre left, right with no friction detected, again checking the movment by pulling on the fork lowers.

Hey there!! Randomly found this page and i just try and see if it works. I have a 1991 Honda CB two-fifty and when i break there seems to be play in the fork bearings or in the front fork tubes. I can...

You will have to remove the top yoke & re-bed the bearings by turning the bottom c-ring until it seats lightly, re-lock with top c-ring & torque down the top nut

How to change the berings in the front fork (stering) i cant open the big 27 screw on the top. Yamaha TDR 125

well to change the steering head bearings,

firstly you need to take off your headlight or anything thats in the way just to make it a little easier, then you put the bike on a stand and get the front wheel off the floor, un bolt the top yoke (clamp) from the forks, then you MUST un bult that 27 screw on the top of the sterring colum, if you must use vice grips and buy a new bolt/ nut.

when the top half is finaly loose you can pull the handle bars up and the top yoke will come off, and the bottom half with the wheel and forks will also come out with a tap or it might just come so watch yourself and the bike. then you can put new bearings and put it all back together the same way you started.

for more help email me (

Engine revs to full throttle when starting 1100 Yamaha maxim

More likely too much air - runaway revs is indicative of too lean, not too rich. Regardless, it is your carbs causing the problem - strip them down and look - for peace of mind on an 82 bike, I would throw a rebuild kit at them.

I would like to know how to change the front forks on my burman

To remove the forks you need to untighten the screws holding the forks in the yoke, then hit the tops of the forks slightly with a wooden hammer to get them out of the yoke.

1982 fxr inner primary what year fit

1982 and 1983 FXR inner primary housings are unique to those two years (rubber mounted motor with 5 speed tranny.) This item seems to be a bit difficult to locate. Can't find any after market inner primaries anywhere that I have looked. Mine has the top front ear broken. I will be having it tigged. If you can save yours - I would.

If you come across one at a swap meet somewhere I would grab it!
