Navin, I just read through the Ninja250.org FAQ for replacing the steering head bearings. Quite the dissembly job required. With that much work required, I'd definitely swap in any new front end parts (you suggested WP components earlier) or a complete new front end (from a ZX-6R or GSX-R?) - now! Doing that much work twice will suck.
