I don't know the size but why do you want to grease those bearings?

On my last three Honda road motorcycles, I never greased those bearings but I've also done my best to keep water away from that area when washing the bike and never use a power washer!

Those bearings could get 'sticky' or wear out and making turning to left/right sticky/jerky/squiggly. BMW is notorious for not putting enough grease on those bearings and when my bmw g650gs hit 30,000 miles, I had to remove the steering head and grease those bearings-it was very notchy to turn full left or full right.
