Steering stop protectors - Steering stop limiters in different variants

On a motorcycle, the so-called steering stop is located between the tank and the handlebar. On the one hand, this small component serves to protect your fingers should the handlebars press in towards the tank. However, if you have installed a high handlebar on your bike, your hands are out of the danger zone. In the TecBike range you will find the

On the other hand, the actual purpose of the bump stop is to act as a guard to keep the fork stems from hitting the steering head support of your frame. In the worst case, such a collision can cause a total loss, as the entire frame becomes unusable.

If anaccident occurs, the steering stop isoften affected. It breaks through or even tears off completely. Please note, as inconspicuous as this component is, it is TÜV relevant. Even if the vehicle is correctly measured, it will not be approved without this small metal part.

So if you notice that there is damage, you should take the bike to your workshop as soon as possible.

The steering stop is usually an inconspicuous and small metal block. It determines the maximum steering angle and also effectively prevents the handlebar from collapsing. Sounds good and sensible in theory. In practice, these components are often undersized. At high force they bend or tear off as already mentioned.

Steering stop limiters mounted in the right place offer reliable protection. At maximum steering angle, theysupport themselves at a stable point on the frame and thus reduce the risk of damage.

The steering stop protectors in our range include everything you need for a quick and easy installation. They are simply fixed reliably with the included cable ties without drilling.

The steering - the linchpin of your motorcycle

As with any vehicle, the steering plays an essential role on a two-wheeler. In addition to the steering stop, the so-called steering head bearing is also an indispensable part of the steering system, as it has a significant influence on the driving and steering behaviour of the two-wheeler. Therefore, not only the adjustment, but also the condition of this bearing is an important factor for safe driving pleasure.

Every time you brake or rush over a pothole, the small rolling element has to withstand up to a ton of bending load. The bearing consists of rolling elements. If they have left significant marks on the surface of the bearing shells, the steering can no longer oscillate in the straight-ahead position because it easily hooks. If you manoeuvre your bike, this will stress the entire steering angle. The situation is different at higher speeds and, appropriately, at high lean angles. Here, the steering must work extremely precisely in a very small range and be able to adapt without resistance.

Rolling elements that have run in or are adjusted too tightly tend to jam. As a result, the rider is forced to keep his machine in line by making constant corrections when leaning. This is reflected in an unsteady and tippy handling. The wear of the steering head bearings usually starts slowly. The deterioration of the handling characteristics is therefore often not consciously noticed and even experienced drivers are sometimes surprised that they have difficulty catching the correct cornering line even on the familiar home track.

How to check the steering head bearing

To check the steering and the steering head bearing, the front wheel of the bike must be unloaded. Then move the handlebars about 30 millimetres to either side from the straight-ahead position with light steering movements. This is best done with two fingers. You can feel a ratchet position? Then the bearings need to be replaced.

A noticeable steering resistanceduring the rotation of the handlebar can be an indication of an overly preloaded bearing. Make sure that no cables or tensioned cable lines impair the steering's freedom of movement during this test.

If your motorcycle is equipped with a steering damper, it must be unhooked for the check. But beware:Never ride in this condition!A blocked steering system poses an extreme risk of falling!

If the bearing play is set too loosely, this will become apparent during a very simple check: To do this, pull the front brake and push the machine hard until it dips. If you hear a slight clacking or even feel it, put your thumb on the upper bearing. This way you can feel any play in the jerky movement between the adjustment tube/steerer tube and the steering head. Again, open eyes/ears are required: Floating brake pads or brake discs can also cause clacking noises.

Everything you need to maintain and repair your motorcycle

To make every ride on your bike a real pleasure, it must be in top condition at all times. The TecBike range offers you a varied and high-quality selection of products for maintenance and repair.
