Hexadecimus Yes, they're basically bushings. Never seen a bad one, just one out of adjustment, but go for it if you want the peace of mind.

I need to do the steering head on my project bike...the top race is dented.

Really on the Vulcan I would think you'd need to have A LOT of miles on the bike before the swing arm needed work. ..

The picture is for the swingarm. All Balls replied . The extra parts are for other bikes. I only need to replace the bearings and collars and seal.
The was not realy play in the old ones but I replaced it anyway now it is dismanteld.
From the Swingarm I took out a seal. tapperd bearing and collar.

I also replaced the head bearings and collars.
No special tools just a pipe and hammer
I used the old collars to hammer the new one in.
Don't forget to fill the bearings with a lot of grease.

linkage bearings question all balls kit

Hi, need your advise.
I'm rebuilding my frame and i just replaced the linkage bearings. ( also new head bearings)

I took out. 1 seal, 1 bearing and one busing on each site
The all balls kit comes with bushing, bearings , seal, and.... 4 rubber seals 2 messing bushings en 2 shims.
Where does this goes? Do i need them? and how to use them?
The bushing, bearings and seal are installed but i do not like to see parts left over
