A mate made a stainless steel sleeve for me, the lip stops it working its way up through the bearing, it also made it easier to press on.  The bearing was then pressed on to the sleeve.  I dont see any wear issues with this and it should last just fine, cost was very cheap as well.

Very cool. It's a snug fit on the stem i presume?
unplug the connectors from the harness and multimeter the shit out of them

Yep used some pipe on the lip to press it on the stem and then the same process to press the bearing on the sleeve.  The lip also acts as a spacer so the bearing is raised to the right spot and the lower triple clears the frame.

I like it, but being a belt and suspenders kind of guy, I would of put a drop of strong loctite on the inside of the sleeve, just for insurance.

Funny you should say that, forgot to mention that :) Although I'm not sure how much stayed there.

Yeah I meant it...lol. That was the whole delema. No one makes a bearing with the right shaft size with te od I needed. I got it all figured out now.

When you say. "How it was put together" do you mean the forks or the bike? 

I traded a guy on CL staright up for a xt parts motor I didn't need. That is why my cost is so low.

Read it again and tell me that's what you meant.

This is exactly what I did. I'm glad it worked out for you. I hope I have similar results.

I meant to say..."they aren't perfect. 30mm I.D bearings as a close as I could get. I needed 28mm.
