1973 CL 350 Scrambler Steering Head Bearing Question

Been Around the Block
Can anyone tell me the exact number of steel balls I should have for each bearing? I currently have 37. If the part diagrams at Bike Bandit are accurate, then I'm short, but I can not find the number needed for a complete steering head assembly.

Thanks

Sorry I don't know, but getting the tapered bearing sets from AllBalls is a great way to go.

The Honda 350 parts manual says 37 are required, and if it is like the 360, 18 are in the top race and 19 are in the bottom.

The last AllBalls stem bearing I bought were trash. The lower bearing came apart in my hands and the upper bearing didn't fit. I checked the size and the upper was undersized, maybe a mix up in packaging. The lower however was just junk. I was told they changed suppliers and were having problems.

Well it's all good. I did have the correct number. 19 on the bottom, 18 on top. Greased it up good and got it together.

Thanks for the help.

Might (hopefully) be why they are out of stock everywhere. Would hope AllBalls recalled them.
