Maybe you could help me here with the bearing kit. I ordered All Balls 22-1011 which says it fits my bike but I see All Balls 25-1319 which also fits my bike. Am I confused or which one do I need?


One is probably the top race the other is the bottom.

Usually comes in a kit. Check all balls website for fitment.

Edit: from all balls website: Steering Bearing kit   22-1011

1319 is a wheel bearing kit.

I use a small dremel wheel and cut diagonally across the lower race. Once you get most of the way through, a hammer and drift will usually help it pop off without damaging the stem underneath.

Yup. Exactly what I did, too.

So I've been scrubbing on the engine trying to get the oxidation and discoloration off. I've tried the recommended products with scrubbing pads and steel wool which take off some but not all. The dark spots really bother me. Any suggestions?

What's your plan? If you leave it uncoated, oxidation will come back right away. If you clear coat it, they all ways seem to yellow on motors.

I have had good luck painting my motors with aluminum high temp paint. If will give you the uniform look and it lasts.

I would really like to leave it looking like it was from the factory. Bare metal. I don't want a black engine. I think it makes the cool details disappear

Most modern motorcycle motors came painted from the factory. Not sure on the 1970's bikes.

Here is my old 360 motor - see the build thread in my sig.









And here is my Moto Guzzi

Short of completely disassembling and having the parts vapor blasted, this is the easy and cheap way to get it. there are different color, I played with stainless & aluminum colors and different brands to make it look more like it is not just spray bombed.

Rustoleum Aluminum colored enamel ends up looking pretty good, I think.

those engines look awesome. I didn't realize most engines were painted. I just got the frame back from being powdercoated and am really anxious to get the engine installed but now I'm going to have to pick out colors to paint the engine before putting it back in the frame. thanks for the info!
