Cool, thanks.

Does anybody have an idea what the cost for the dealer to do the bearing? I am just curious as I already know I wouldn't have the money for it but I am interested in the savings.

One  Kawasaki dealer here said that nothing ever goes wrong and they never need adjusting.
Hmm.. that tells me they   either don't want  to do it  or don't know how to do it.
Maybe that is why they went under and closed.

Just the way money is right now I am probably not going to try and replace my bearings. Besides the money I also really have no problem with that part of my steering. What I have a problem is with my spring which I have a replacement for. I will have to buy a tool to tighten it but I really can't afford right now to buy the bearing, a bearing puller and Driver. So I will open it up and clean and re-lube them.

I get the money thing, all of us do. The bearing can be had from Murph for $36.50, the driver can be rented for "free" from most retail auto parts places, and some of the better places may also have the puller. Not proud of this, but I bought the puller from HF, gently used it, repackaged it and returned it. No questions asked.
