    Hey all,
    I mainly use MSP (motorcycle spare parts) for spare parts, but the parts carry a premium. I need a good set of Stem bearings, at a reasonable cost as im planning to sell the bike soon. Is there any retputable online dealers about people would reccomend?

    Have you got the bearing number or sizes? If you have then get thee to a local bearing shop or online bearing supplier. I've used bearingboys in the past and also Wych bearings.

    I had more success searching for head bearings rather than stem bearings FWIW

    Yeh, I've seen Head stem bearings, Head bearings etc, seems companies call them what they want. But I was on pyramid parts earlier, I'll give them a try and let you know the results!

    I think I've used them before as well. They can't have been terrible otherwise I would have remembered.

    They looked to be cheaper on Ebay than on Amazon.

    I brought them off the official website, It had a kit with the dust seals etc to which I thought I best replace anyway.
    The amount of TLC I've given this bike is making my wife jealous lol the next owner best appreciate it! Haha

    Bearingboys are great IME, I use 'em at work all the time to get bearings for random test rigs and the like. I've occasionally used 'em for home stuff, but TBH it's a long time since I've needed to change a bearing! I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them though.

    Bit late now since you've already bought the OEM ones, but in future I'd not bother buying bearings from a bike dealer. If you're not comfortable buying a bearing from somewhere other than a bike dealer just post some pics up on here and people can help you find the right one. There's nothing particularly unique or special about bike bearings - in fact you can generally get the precise same ones in a non-branded box for far less money
