Default Still Working

     

I need some help finding the 4 spherical bearings that go in the two rear pushrods.







These are 10mm wide, 21 OD and 10 ID.






Also, the top steering head bearing has ball bearing with a top and bottom section, and the ID on each section is different(to mate with a bulge in the steering stem). I suppose there is no way to substitute a tapered bearing now.

For the spherical bearings, I would contact an industrial supply company like Kaman or Motion Industries, or whoever you have local to you. They will likely be able to use the dimensions to find a cross-reference. For the steering head bearing, could a tapered bearing be made to work by machining the steering stem? That one may be more of a challenge.

Ok, maybe machining the stem would work, thats a good idea, thanks!

Those bearings should be available OEM? Part number 10 and 14 correct?

They are expensive though.

Yes, they are available from Suzuki but I thought that I might be able to find a high quality substitute for a cheaper price.

This is the top steering stem, is this a removable race or machined part of the frame. The multi piece bearing above(pictured in previous post) and below, fits this top of the steering stem.




This is what the top bearing looked like before I removed the it.




The bottom race is normal and I removed it without a problem.

Sorry, I misread then. I agree with Cowboy - a local bearing house should be able to hook you up.

No worries, I think I will go that route.

I left my parts with a local powdercoater and after two weeks of the continual run around I went and picked up my parts that were sitting in the same pile in the shop floor where I had left them two weeks ago.

I am shipping my parts to my old powdercoater.He does a great job but the shipping is a little expensive.

This is what a bike looks like in a box.




Engine cases bubble wrapped and boxed up.


Hubs, cylinder and other pieces.

Here is a picture of the oem silencer. It was very oxidized, I cleaned it up a bit with a wire wheel. (Always wear respiratory protection) I am going to have it and the radiators anodized.



The 34 year old radiators don't look too bad.

Some more parts coming in bit by bit.I picked up some used protapers.




The Oem triples are rubber mounted, and when I disassembled the triples the rubber cones looked like new.

Default ATTN SUZUKI EXPERTS:Does Anyone Know If This Upper Race is Removable?????

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS UPPER RACE IS REMOVABLE??????????? No one seems to know the answer on any on the forums. The tapered bearing kit from all balls comes with a new race with specific instructions on machining the stem to accept the tapered bearing. Before I put a torch on this upper race and drive it out, I want to make sure it is actually a removable race because if it is removable it is very solidly seized and I may deform it by removing it.
