Just bought a brand new xtz125 for $2300

needed something that wouldnt crush me when I fell off

Yes, it's a sweet bike, easy to ride and enough power to drive around town. And pretty fuel economical too, easy to squeeze over 30 km out of 1L of juice..

Unfortunately one of the balls in the bearing of the front fork of mine has cracked, and now steering it is quite difficult, because it always wants to return to a 'default position', the position of the broken ball. I have not been able to source spare parts so far....

Any idea where to get in anyone? Yamaha shops al around the country are a no go, and so far big online shops do not source it too, so it seems.

Ball bearings are pretty standard (round) but what you are now doing by continuing to use it like that is gouging out the bearing races which will be harder to find

Yeah, bearings are standard so just go to a bearing shop or better yet, go to a mechanic that has a press and they'll change it for you for a few bucks.
