I had new tires put on the bike and the front end was still handling a little junky. I took it back to the shop and he said the guy was supposed to talk to me because my steering head bearings where "dangerously worn". Not being mechanically inclined I requested a quote. Cried a little bit and called around for more quotes. The cheapest I can get it done is $180 plus parts. I made mention to a gentleman here at my work who laughed and said do it myself. I have manuals on this bike (it's a 1982 KZ 650 CSR).
In all honestly... not being very mechanically inclined... the most I've done is replace car belts, brakes, oil change, and thats about it. How big of a job is this going to be? Am I better off dumping the $180 and $40 in parts?
Any opinions would be appreciated... also, if opinions say to do it myself, any tips? Special tools I would need?
