I know this thread is a bit old, but as a FYI, the bearing cones for the C15 will fit the stepped bottom yoke model (like my D7), however the cups are too big outer diameter. As the C15 headstock bearing set is readily available, I was going to order one and get the cups machined down to fit, otherwise it means scrapping the cups in the set and buying the (also readily available) D7 cups which are £10 each.

Neither link works, but surely if the cups are too large, you would have to increase the diameter of the headstock not reduce it? Or am I missing something?

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a 77 Honda CB125S. I have a B175 in the workshop and a 76 Honda C90 waiting its turn. A 1980 Honda CB400N waiting for MOT.  Everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster.

Hi Rich,   I see that Draganfly do taper roller bearing for the d10 and maybe they`re also suitable for yoy d14. Put details in the website search box.

Regards, Gary.
