Sur-Ron Tapered Roller Bearing Upgrade Headset
For a while the headset has been the weakest link in the Sur Ron motorcross bike. With hard riding and jumping the headset bearings would develop play and require replacing.
Luna has brought this issue up several times with Sur Ron and now we have a robust answer to this issue.
These new Headset bearings designed just for the Sur Ron and use needle tapered bearings to establish many contact points in the headset resulting in a headset that is at least 20x as strong as the stock bicycle headset used in the past bikes.
This is the same type of bearing used in serious off road motorcycle bikes.
The new Black edition Sur-Ron bike with Rockshox fork has this upgrade as standard equipment.. the older model bikes do not. If you feel a bit of play in your steering after hard off road riding this is probable the issue.
Replacing the headset is an easy job and should take a mildly mechanical person 30 minutes to do.
The kit comes with everything you need (pictured) to easily replace your old bicycle grade head set with this rugged and reliable motorcycle grade set up.
We recommend this upgrade for anyone thinking about upgrading forks for for serious off road riders who enjoy jumping their bikes.
