Hi guys just found this on Ebay and wondered what I would have to do to make this work? i.e replace top yoke nut with an open ended type (what size nut is it).

I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Just as an aside, with the Yamaha set-up, it's the dome nut that actually locks the whole steering head set-up in place. The thin castellated nut under the top yoke, which is "locked" to the lower adjusting nut by a castellated washer, with a flexible washer in between the two, is merely there to keep the bearing adjustment when the dome nut is tightened down. So it's important that if you do fit an open-ended nut that it's torqued up to the correct value. This isn't at all clear from the Haynes manual.

If you've got the time and inclination, it would be worth checking (or even re-greasing) your head bearings while you're at it.

Other bikes that don't have this double-nut feature (such as the Suzuki I worked on recently) are a real pain to get the steering head bearing adjustment dead right - you have to leave a bit of slack to start with, to allow for it to tighten up when the dome nut is torqued up. So - good thinking Mr Yamaha.
