Steering notch in the center

My CPX developed a strange "notch" in the center of steering.

I suspect that this is due to riding on pretty bumpy roads, but the steering is straight (in the center) most of the time, so everytime I ran over a bump while going straight, a small piece was chipped in the bearing at the same spot, and after 1500km it started to be noticable.

I recorded a video for Vmoto to demonstrate the issue:

Vmoto told me there are two bearings, HR32005XJ and HR32006XJ (top and bottom). Thankfully, they are standardized bearings so they are available locally, but since my scooter is in warranty, I wanted them to provide them to me and also provide me with instructions/service manual so I know how to replace it.

I cannot take the scooter to my dealer because I bought the scooter in different country - Germany - and the dealer scammed me with COC list so I have very bad relationship with them.

Anyone else having the same issue?

When i test drived the distributor's CPX i noticed it as well. When i asked him, he said that this is a known issue and he has replaced the steering bearings in many of them.

He was honest 😆 

Well, that didn't stop me from buying my new CPX, but i know it will happen to me as well. The other thing that he told me is that the originals are prone to failure so in case this happens his advice it to install a Japanese one (seems logical 😆 )

@potatorato Is it covered under warranty?

What did he tell you?

I replaced it myself. Bought a bearing puller and a special hammer to remove it and installed a japanese one as well. So far so good.

Tive esse mesmo problema em toda minha frota, qual marca de rolamento esta sendo utilizado quando substituído?
