Replace the headstock bearings after a fork bending wreck?
I finally got new forks and trees for the YZF and had a thought before I install them.
Should I replace the headstock bearings?
Pics of progress and my bent forks.
Yeah I'm dealing with some exhaust carnage too. That poor V&H header is beat up a bit. I'm willing to bet that front wheel is bent too.

I'd certainly check their condition and they are cheap to replace. That being said, I've not replaced them on a bike that even had the lower triple tree bent from an accident and there was never an issue with them five years later.
