    Tapered Steering Stem Bearings

    Okay, I am rebuilding the front end on wankermobile 3 and have another question. I need to order tapered steering stem bearings and found that CRC2 sells them for $44 + change. Any suggestions on where I can get a better deal?

    Steering Damper?
    Tim T. (El Constant Gardener) recommends the Daytona steering damper. Since, Tim has not steered me wrong in the past (pun completely intended), I suspect this is a fine product. Any other suggestions? I only ask since Tim sometimes is as squirrelly as "Rocky" (the squirrel) after digesting a bad batch of happy nuts.... (not really talking about his riding style)... But heck, I've known Tim for a long time and if you can't poke fun at your fellow wankers, then who can you poke fun at!

    Note: I will be resting comfortably in a tree awaiting any responses.

    Pete "Yell'er".

    You can try www.pro-flo.com for the steering head bearings, they sell the AllBalls brand. However, I've found that my local dealers will give me the same deal or sometimes better and I avoid the shipping charge.
    Don't know 'bout the damper.

    I run Shindy Daytonas on all my race bikes including the R6 that does 13's. That wasn't on purpose but it ended up working just fine.

    Thanks! Pro-Flo has the bearings for 10 dollars cheaper. For a cheapskate like me that is a fortune!

    I should never have doubted you Tim! How was "Dirt" Eastern States? I ordered the AllBalls from pro-flo yesterday. I didn't think about cuttin' out the middle man and going directly to AllBalls... next time.

    Thanks All.

    Alex - are you going to respond to tim's posting?

    nothing against pro flo.... i have just had to wait a very long time for products advertised on the website... things were not in stock, they didn't tell me and i waited and waited and finally said fuck it... went direct. they have really nice clip ons though.
