Front wheel bearings....

When I was washing the bike yesterday I noticed a little free play in the front wheel, so I took the wheel off to inspect the bearings and sure enough one side as a small amount of free play and is a little notchy when you turn it. Question is firstly how hard are they to remove? Would it be worth investing in a bearing remover of some sort, secondly can i just take the old bearing to a bearing shop and getting them to match it?

Thanks in advance
Dan

Search here for a thread called 'wheel bearing list' man.

The sizes you need are there. Get them from a bearing shop. Readily available. Add '2RS' to the part number. This means a rubber seal in each side of the bearing.

Also, get new hub seals.

Piece of piss to change. Hammer and a long drift.

Check for cue lips first

Good luck

Thanks Tony! Will the bearing shop have hub seals or is it a husaberg specific part?

Cue lips....

iPhone fail. I'm sure I typed vorc lips

Err I mean circlips.


Yeah they should have the seals. You'll find the part numbers for those on the bearing list thread too. It's a 3 numbers seperated by an X

Eg 68X58X6

Being outside diam X inside diam X width. I'm millimeters.

I am looking for that list as well, can't find it after doing the search.

Can someone post the link, thanks.

Last time, I bought All balls upgrade kit from Rocky Mountain, but I reckon they are not that good, I got play again after a few months.

This time, I will buy local SKF once I have the reference.

The trouble with all Ktm & Berg wheel bearings is the wheel spacer itself. It is made from aluminium and prematurely wears. Pull it out and have a look at it where the seal runs. They normally get big grooves in them.

The newly fitted wheel bearings wont last very long because the seal can no longer seal up on the worn spacer, allowing mud and water into the bearings.

Do yourself a favour and get some long lasting wheel spacers at the same time. Allballz or Ballards sell them.
