The Technical Bit - Aprilia Steering Head Bearings

We love our technical bits and this one is no exception.

In this one our tech guru looks at steering head bearings on the Aprilia motorcycle (though its pretty universal on all bikes in truth folks) and how to check them for tight spots and notches to ensure you know when they are in need of adjustment or potentially past their best.

A top tip from us is to make sure your steering damper is either disconnected or completely wound off prior to checking as this could give a false feeling or result.
