Common symptoms of bad steering head bearings include poor steering feel, strange resistance, clunking from the front end, or a notchy feeling, particularly when pointing the front wheel straight ahead. In extreme cases, there will be visible and audible play.

Should you grease dirt bike axles?

The axle does not turn when your spin the wheel. ... Some suggest that you should still grease the axles against rust. My experience though is that grease is sticky and attracts dirt that leads to "gunk" that leads to more sand and dirt that leads to problems that are messy (and greasy) to clean and solve.

What kind of grease should I use on my dirt bike?

A thin layer of copper grease will suffice.

Why is my motorcycle harder turning?

Generally low pressure will make a bike feel lazy and hard to turn. Having worn / squared off tires will do that. Presuming the bike is not lowered in the rear. Check correct tire pressure, tire wear and head stem tightness per spec.

Why is my motorcycle pulling to the left?

A motorcycle may pull to one side while on the road because of a misalignment between the handlebars and the front tire which is usually caused by misaligned front forks. A pull to one side can also be caused by wear on one side of the front tire as well as an unbalanced front tire.
