    UMI steering - too tight!

    I just finished my HX build. It has UMI steering. I was out yesterday and noticed after about an hour of riding that the steering got a lot tighter. I first noticed it because I was doing more leaning and less bar motion.

    The cable doesn't look to be pinched any where. I thought the bearing in the UMI were sealed units.

    I sprayed some silicone lubricant on both end of the cables to see if it would assist and it really didn't do much. Is this a sign of the steering cable going bad or the UMI bearing needing replacement?

    If bearings any pointers would be great as I haven't dealt with a UMI sterring before.


    Thanks guys.

    IIRC the bearing is a 6003 & I used 6003-2RS they are stainless steel so they wont rust.
