Steering head bearings

After searching evolution bike and star twin it looks like the steering tube and bearings come as an assembly and expensive. Can anyone confirm if this is true or can I just replace the bearings. Thanks Guys. On a 2010 1078RR Brutale.

OK,can anyone help with the bearing numbers please.
Do we convert the original bearings to tapered rollers?

Hi

There are a few threads on the replacing the standard ball bearings with taper rollers, this is one of them:

http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/20-mai...-bearings.html

This is the replacement bearing for the early bikes:

32907JR3 Narrow Section Steering Head Set Taper Roller Bearing 35x55x15mm

I bought mine from Pyramid Parts but they are probably widely available.

Thanks Tony, absolute champion. Hey Mitchy, I might as well try and get them here if the tapered rollers are easier to find than exotic ball bearings rather than take up your time. Iíll let you know how I go. Thanks very much for your help Mate, gotta love this forum
