The steering feels notchy on my newly acquired bike. It steers somewhat stiff and wants to stick right in the middle. This little bit of annoyance makes it steer rather scary.
I'm wondering if those of you that have dealt with this on your old bikes have got away with just removing the bearings, cleaning and repacking and replacing? I've never opened a triple, but have a bud who has many times. He thinks I can just repack instead of having to install new races.

Thoughts?
Thanks
(O and what kind of grease?)

Dang you! He gave me hope I could knock the task out easy and cheap.
How hard is it to even access the bearings?
How hard to do the complete job?
Thanks!

They may have a set of tapered bearings to replace you old ones.

My Official Honda Shop Manual says to use ATF. The capacity is 185-195 cc (or 6.3-6.6 oz.)

Thanks,
Anyone using and happy with ATF? I have a hard time picturing it being better than some good fork oil.

Is all ATF the same weight? What weight?

Thanks for playing twenty questions. Honda shop manual on the way from eBay

Here is the bike. Very happy with it so far and for $700 bucks I think it was a good deal.

Titled, plated, street legal.
