Spacer steering head, SIP
for Vespa PK50-125 XL/FL/HP/N
If the scooter does not have any directional stability, or has a spongy road behaviour we recommend checking the upper and lower steering head bearings. It is easy to check the functionality with an unloaded front wheel. Simply jack up the scooter on the centre stand and move the steering shaft with the wheel control back and forth in the direction of travel. If the steering column shows clearance it is necessary to either retighten the upper nut or to replace the bearings. Checking the bearing shells is also recommended at the same time. We stock the individual bearings/balls as well as complete headset bearing sets.
SIP-TIP: With the steering head bearing key it is possible to open and lock the upper attachment professionally. With the appropriate punch bearing and retraction tool, changing the bearing shells is as easy as pie!
Daily, parts from original manufacturers such as PIAGGIO or OEM are taken out of production. This means there is no other alternative to used parts if you need a missing disk, clip or bracket. Nerve wracking and time consuming at the least, trying to run down those little missing necessary parts.
That's why we decided to produce a number of parts in high quality under the name SIP Spare Parts. Our goal is to get stranded Vespas needing essential small parts back on the road. A major job for small parts ...
OEM Numbers (for the purpose of comparison)
