Did you remove the snap ring from the top?

Should be able to get one at the Honda dealer. If you don't put one back in, it might work it's way back up out of there, because of the steering shaft trying to work up and down when you hit bumps and holes.

alright just got done with test ride and evrything seems perfect. took me bout an hour with the dremel to get the ring off got it all out then put in new bearing. and for the lock ring i took a key ring and was able to stretch it into a perfect circle and it snapped right in place. took it for ride and it was so much better.

Yeah, that was a good ideal. If you had went to the Honda dealer you probably would have had to order it. It seems like they never have anything in stock at my local Honda dealer anymore.
