Following a regular service, I've just been told that the head race bearings will need replacing soon. :(
Has anybody done this themselves? If so, how difficult is it and are any special tools needed?

what exactly are "head race bearings"??

Hi Axman, I think they mean the bearings at the top of the forks, just below the handlebars.
They said the steering may become 'notchy' as the bearings became flattened.

He means the Steering Parts,respectively the Bearings for that.
