    Photos would help Kevin. Have you joined the GRA? If so you need to email Rob Thornton to get your membership upgraded. You will then be able to post pictures, access the members-only area where there is a lot of information available, etc.

      Kevin, as far as I remember, his kit is just an outer ring for the bearing track & a smaller ring to make up the Id of the inner race, so did the top yoke fit right before?
      Some things to check, are the tracks driven home properly, are the new bearings the same depth as the old ones, have the tops of the forks been shortened,
      They do vary in length, measure from the top face of the bottom clamp to the top of the tube, also, the top yoke should sit in the fork leg at least an inch.
      I have fitted those kits before, cheap & tacky, but do work, so I would back track to see if you can see the problem.
