Motion Pro - Steering Stem Bearing Tool Designs

Californian tools, cables and controls specialist Motion Pro, founded in 1984 by legendary off-road racer Chris Carter, has added to its growing V-twin tools program with a Motion Pro steering stem bearing tool.
"A motorcycle's steering stem bearings are important components which can affect the feel and handling when riding. Often these components freeze up or break down due to excessive wear or corrosion. 

"Our new steering stem bearing tool design can easily handle the removal and installation process when replacing these components. Motion Pro now offers two versions to fit various H-D models, the 08-0558 built to work with earlier Harleys (Motion Pro recommends using our 'search by vehicle' function on for correct application fitment) and, most recent, the new 08-0667 steering head bearing tool - now available for use on Touring models 2014 and up.  

"Similar in design to the version offered for earlier models, this new design is for use with the larger bearings and shorter stem found on the 2014 and up baggers.
"Unique to these applications, both top and bottom bearings are pressed onto the stem and require this tool for removal and installation. What used to need a press or a torch can now be done easily with basic hand tools, in a matter of minutes.
"Whether for shop technicians or home wrenching, this tool will help make swapping the bearings on your steering stem a breeze."
In other news, as Motion Pro gets set for another year as the Official Tools, Cables and Controls vendor and as a contingency prize fund sponsor of American Flat Track racing, the company is also giving support to Rookies of '79 and Friends - the series' Official Charity Partner, a partnership extending into its fourth year in 2021.
