I need to know the size of the steering stem nut. Ive asked teh dealer and looked at fiche's and noone can tell me. Its either a 34 or 36mm I believe. The reason I ask is because I need one and I found a custom one I want instead of spending the same amount on a stock one. Thanks!

i believe it SHOULD be the same size as the stock one off any katana/gsxr/pretty much any suzuki made before 96. they almost all use the same stem and bearings.

The katana uses a different setup. It actually uses a bolt with an attached nut or whatever on it. Like I said, the guy says in the auction there are two sizes, I just wanna make sure i get the right one the first time lol

ooooooh, ok.


a big one?? lol


i believe it's a 36. i only say that because i don't even think i've ever used my 34mm socket, but the 36 gets used quite often.

Argggg my hopes keep getting raised when I see a new post hoping someone has the answer lol. I emailed him and asked if he would just send 1 of each and I would return the one that didnt fit.
