@curlyboi the bearings you refer to, do you know if they fit TS1200S?

Same here, 1800 miles. Thanks for bearing information, that's very helpful. I'll get them in before taking the front end apart

ok, replacing these bearings was a pain in the arse

Main issue is the lower outer bearing race in the steering stem 
Unlike the upper bearing outer race, the stem around the lower outer bearing race is formed so there is minimal access for removal 

There seems to be special thin claw bearing pullers out there which I'm going to try to source
If anyone knows exactly which one will work please let me know

I'll try to add a picture in here of the lower bearing location.

Ctrl+V pasting images in here doesn't work as suggested 🙁
Attaching files doesn't seem to work either
I'll try opening in another browser

edit: Nope, I've tried two different browsers and I'm unable to insert a picture or attach a file in this forum thread 🙁

Hi @curlyboi, they look like they should work!

I did manage to replace the bearings eventually, but seeing how difficult it was I'm going to get hold of these for the future 

Thanks for that 🙂

@jerome pretty expensive tools, but did the job very nicely and since i was in the process of opening a dealership, they were a good investment
