These bearings went into an 03 R1 and they are nice if you have a damper. But I do not. The stock bearings made for a stiffer ride the all balls do not. The company that sold them were reasonably priced and very fast shipping.

All Balls bearings are a quality product. Clean and grease everything well and you shouldn't have any issues. Its guys that don't take their time with bearings that have problems.
I feel the difference on my bike..very good quality..
Worked great on my Kx 500
Installation was easy and the bike feels better than ever.
The only reason I marked one review down is just cause bearing suck to install regardless. Once I got my own method down it wasn't so bad definitely high quality and I can definitely tell a difference in the bike. All Balls is awesome! And MotoSport is a great website. Fast shipping quick customer replies.. Definitely awesome!
way better then the stock ones, a must have upgrade for any bike
It is a good product at good prices
Fit ,quality and delivery was spot on thank you Motorsports.
No complaints at all. Factory quality at a fraction of the price.
Didnt come tapered as described but they still fit the bike just fine
Fit well and were delivered on time no hassle
Fit my CR250. Time will tell if these last as long as OEM, I think they will be fine with an occasional re-packing. I made a tool to install the new lower (pressed) on bearing by taking the old bearing inner piece and grinding out the inside diameter slightly so that it would slide down the shaft perfectly against the new bearing, then used a 1-5/8 OD pipe to drive this "tool" down to press on bearing. Look at the instructions on the allballs website before you start.
Replaced the loose ball bearings with this tapered set on a '99 Ninja 250. Didn't correct the wobble on deceleration I was experiencing (the original bearings were fine - it was rear wheel alignment), but the steering is still smooth and easy. A huge benefit to a tapered bearing over a set of loose balls is durability, and the fact that removing your triple doesn't set 40 little bearings bouncing and rolling all over the place when you remove it. Installation can be intimidating on your first time - if you're driving the races in or removing them with a hammer and drift just be sure you stay square and don't be shy. A huge bolt, nut and some large washers make a decent tool to press the included bearing races into the steering stem. A pipe works well to drive the lower bearing onto the triple, just remember to put the included seal on first.
Taper bearings way to go,if your bike has round bearings. Improve steering and feels solid, more area contact with taper bearings . Used taper bearing for my other bikes.Motosport customer service, #1
Seriously the single best mod I've done to the Lil Blue Donkey,Much more precise steering with almost zero, nip, nada drag.....
Solid, smooth feeling bearings. Removed all slack and play from my steering.
