Re: Front wheel bearings

The only problem I've ever had was when replaceing the clip on the end of the axel.The axel keeps slideing back in so I use one of the hub bolts screwed into the axel a few threads and then I can hold the axel out where I need it.

Re: Front wheel bearings

When replacing the bearing races, you can use one of the old races as an installation tool to help you drive the new races into position. Also, don't forget to replace the inner grease seals while you're in there. HTH

Re: Front wheel bearings

Check your king pin bearings also. You might want to rebuild the whole blasted thing! [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Front wheel bearings

Good advice. I put new wheel bearings, races, grease seals, rotors and pads on mine last July. Less than a year later, I found that my kingpin bearings were shot. Then I had to take everything back apart a second time. Live and learn!
