    cb550 steering head bearings

    On my 1969 CB450, i'm going to run some mismatched front end parts.

    I have a set of trees from an unknown year CB550, maybe a CB500. Not sure.

    the frame that they came off of doesn't have a vin on it so can't tell.

    THe neck is the same measurements as that of my CB450k2.

    So this should be completely bolt on. But i don't know what year to look for on the tapered bearings.

    on ebay i've found that 74-78 cb550 all have one part number, while earlier have another.

    to confuse me even more, the 68-74 CB450 have yet another part number even though the necks measure the same in bearing depth and diameter for the race.


    74-78 cb550 - br29-5028
    68-74 cb450 - br29-5014
    all Cb500 - br29-5020

    Can anyone help me out here?

    cool, it list all the same part number for CB450k2 and CB550 so i'm guessing the 1mm washer it mentions is the difference. thanks rosko!
