PN for steering stem bearings for my Raleigh Technium Scott Tinley Tri-Lit

I need the steering stem bearings for my Raleigh Technium Scott Tinley Tri-Lite #R810570159 that I bought new and still ride. Where can I get them? Manufacturer and part number would help.

Hello and welcome to the forums. I think your looking for headset (HS) bearings. The headset is the bearing assembly the fork rotates on. I donít think that HS isnít made by Raleigh so we would need the name of the HS manufacturer. Is the bike already apart? Your best bet is to take the bearings to a local shop and see if they have some that will work.

How do the races look? Any deep scoring or dimples?

Bearings on a retainer ring can be replaced with loose balls. Most are either 5/32 or 3/16. You can get the right size at your LBS or find them online at amazon or ebay. Takes about 30 per race, including the ones that you drop and go rolling away forever.
