CD-LTBK - E-4.5
Pricing: $59.95

Tapered roller bearings are uniquely designed to manage both thrust and radial loads on rotating shafts and in housings. As opposed to ball bearings with only handle a single load (steering rotation but not the load of riding the bike down the road).

The small disadvantage of a tapered bearing is the large bearing surface area can cause increased bearing drag versus ball bearings (especially noticeable in un-lubricated applications), the advantage is the same increased surface area provides increased rigidity and overall control in riding conditions creating a more positive feel.

Many companies use taper bearings from the factory on their steering stems, unfortunately Ducati isn't one of them.
The best compliment when upgrading your suspension. Helps eliminate head shake and requires less maintenance than stock roller bearings.

Kit comes complete with both upper and lower taper bearings, races, and seals.

Great upgrade from the OE ball bearings. Much more solid feel on the front end, immediately noticeable. Highly recommend....! Owned my 916 for many years, one of the best and least expensive upgrades yet.

I added these when I had my ST2. Huge difference in the way the bike "ignores" road imperfections.

Reminded me of my 1st DUC ride on a friend's 1978 900SS. Felt like it was on rails.

Bought another set here for my ST4s.

Can't wait to get them installed!!
