Default the bearing used in handle bar of bikes

Hi,
can anyone throw light on the type of bearing used in the handle bar of a bike, that allows the left right steering.

i have been feeling jerks when i pur front brakes, and i feel the bearing has gone loose. i also doubt if it was checked in regular service, but before approaching the mech,i wanted to know if it's a frequently serviced and replaced part.

Thanks.

It should be a regular caged ball bearing.

To check, put the bike on the main stand and raise the front wheel in the air a bit. Then, with the front tyre between your legs, try and move the forks vertically. If you feel some play, try tightening the big nut in the center of the top yoke. If there is still play in the stem, you would have to change your head bearings.
