2009 Tenere Steering Head Bearings
I've managed to aquire a nice little XTZ Tenere for a good price (+accessories) and decided to put it into the local Edinburgh Yamaha dealer for a service to give it the once over.
His report was the swingarm bearings needed taking out and regreasing but
the swingarm has just been replaced...? I'm trying to find a grease nipple to do the job myself but to no avail, any ideas?
Also, the steering head bearings needed replacing. They don't feel the best so I'll agree but what I don't agree to is the cost....... £160+tax+fitting!!
I've looked about a bit on t'internet and found others for about £50.00 or so (Wemoto, etc), which is a shocking price difference!
Could anyone advise on bearings they may have used which are good quality? and is this the usual dealer scam or do Yamaha really charge these prices?
Any advice would be great, thanks in advance
