Yup, the bearings are supposed to replace the bushings originally on the triple clamps. The only reason for the upper hole is for the steering shaft to stick through.

Hi Bigmd, just need to drill a hole for the top - don't touch the bottom.
I hope the photos will help. Other option parts - cast steering head,
aluminium gear box.

Have fun with your bike!

Hi bigmd,
no changes for the bottom part. Look at gyrmg's reply again -

yeah mk1 triples on the bottom weren't made for bearings.

doesn't matter though, I've found that the bearings don't really matter in terms of steering performance.
