Fork Head Bearings

I want to change the bearings in the Fork Head of my 1999 KLR.
I need to know if anyone has the "international'" bearing numbers for them.

I do not want the Kawasaki part number because I need to buy them at a bearing house like I have done many times before. Ordering Kaw parts here in the Philippines takes forever and is very expensive!!

Thanks

Best thing is to just take the used bearings to the supplier for a cross reference match. I've never replaced them on mine but it should be just a tapered roller bearing set......cup and cone. Get Timkens if available.

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.

Yeah..........probably what I'll do.
Just hate to work on stuff without the parts on hand.
I've had motors laying around for a long time waiting for "back-ordered" parts!

Rocky Mt. has the bearings. If you're replacing the races you might want an install tool.
