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.

Head Race bearings

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?

Headlight bulb

Has anyone changed their headlamp bulb for something better?
I've recently started to use country roads quite a bit and the main beam is useless.

Now covered 3000 miles(4800kms) with my Dunlop D220's. Very pleased with them. The handling is great in both the wet and dry and they are wearing well. 95%+ so far. :) :) :)

Tyres

Finally got round to changing my tyres having squeezed 7500 miles(12000km) out of the Z3's. After much deliberation I went for Dunlop D220's. The noise I'd had with the Z3's disappeared, the handling is great and they say they'll last as well!!!!
So far very pleased

Noisy Bike

Thanks for the information Axman. I'll certainly change tyres as soon as I can.

Otherwise the bike is fine, I've done 1600 km and it's running well.
Sorry about the lack of German - it's an English failing!!

Noisy bike!

Recently bought a new BT1100. Problem with it is 'front end rolling noise'. It's noticeable above 40kph. It's still there if you turn the engine off, so I assume it's not mechanical. I've had the front wheel bearings andf front brake checked, and they're OK. I've never had a bike make a noise like t...
