    Hi guys,
    hope everyone is doing well, got a quick question for you all, I am about to start a steering bearing change on my VFR and could not find a how to area, coming from other forums, we usually got a How to area for every version of the bike we have, do we have a How to area, reason I am asking is because I am about to start taking pics of the whole process so I can post it up.

    I have seen many threads where a how to this and that is described, but it would be nice to have a how to sticky area for all the common stuff or the complicated stuff.
    please let me know if I am missing something, or if this is something that could be implemented in the future. Also I do not want to waste time taking pics if it is already there.
    I will be changing the bearings on a 2004 6th gen.

    Being as this forum has been around for better than a decade, many of the repair tasks have been discussed photoed sliced and diced multiple times already, but not set in a how to area. There is a mechanic's section.....
    You might search to see what you come up with....

    Thanks Mello, Yeap, found that one, but everything seems scattered here and there, thought it would easier if we have a How to section with the most common thing, although the most common for some of us is everything :) since we ended up doing all of the work on our bikes.

    The good new is that I thought I was due for bearings, but i procrastinated to check the tire pressure for the tires, and found the front to be super low, pump it up to the specs and it handles way better, now I do not have the weird feeling up on the steering anymore, should it have started there.

    I will keep an eye on the bearings anyway since it has 32k miles on it and I have read here that many folks have found them to be done around that time, manual call for checks I believe, but if I am taking the thing apart I am changing it already.
