In part one we managed to remove the handle bars and the upper bearings that resulted in the steering fork to drop down sufficiently to examine the lower bearings. Both upper and lower bearings were found to be fine but were lacking grease and required cleaning.
For the record, Joe Goulet to the left of me in the picture was a tremendous help and I think that I will politely ask him to become part of my Riding Blog Maintenance and Repair team for future videos.
Working together made the job far more pleasant and as always, two minds are better than one.
Joe has much experience in completely disassembling motorcycles down to the last screw so he had my back all the way.
The video conclusion of the steering bearings can be found below.
