vulcan 500 steering head bearings
A few thousand miles back I noticed a notch or detent when turning the handle bars from side to side while parked. I think the notch has gotten "deeper" and now I am getting a wobble of the handle bars around 42 - 52 mph. I suspect the steering head bearings are need of replacement. Any one know if these are bearings I can buy or match at local auto parts store?? I hate to tear her apart to try and match, only to have to wait to order bearings any way. If I have to order, I'd like to have on hand to replace as soon as I tear down, so as parts placement is fresh in my mind. Just to mention, I did just put a new front pirelli tire on about the time the wobble started. I thought it might be out of balance, so I bought a black widow static balancer, rebalanced and tried again, but the wobble is still there. Could front wheel bearings be a cause??
