Re: 954 stem bearings

All the ones I have done are 'bare' bearings. The top cap under the top yoke acts as a seal.

seals are the caps
as Jdugen says

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground. As long as I fall, I'm safe & sound.

Just use your old dust seals.
If you've already pressed the lower bearing onto the stem though you won't be able to get a seal over it.

Havent pulled them out yet, just was asking before i do anything, as i was looking at the diagrams in the manual... and i was like SH*T no seals.

They are shot!!! steering feels like an ex! or a HOT DOG DOWN A HALL WAY! lol alot of movement in there!

Re: 954 stem bearings

is there any advantage/disadvantage to using this type of bearing over the stock setup. I have heard rumors about a steering bearing swap on the 954 to make it a little more mild feeling? something about going back to the 929 style bearing.
