  • TL1000 aftermarket wheels, bearing problem.

    Hi all

    Would I be right in thinking that fitting Delkevic wheels front and rear, the standard Suzuki hub bearing needs to go in the middle of the wheel still?

    In 1 year, I have gone through 3 sets of wheel bearings, because the standard suzuki hub does not fit into these wheels. When I contacted Delkevic, they said you do not need to fit it.

    From the problems I am having, I believe they are talking sh-t.

    I guess this hub bearing stops the inner ring of the bearing from being forced in the the centre of the wheel!

    Would this be correct.

    Kind regards

    They are talking shit, it sounds like something is being forced out of alignment. I guess their wheel casting does not mate well with the OEM hub.

    If you still have the stock wheels, you might be able to compare the two, side by side and figure out what is different.

      The inner race of each bearing needs to be supported in its location.

      So initially there should be a spacer between the inner races of the wheel.

      Get it measured and have one machined to suit..

      The space between the wheel race and the cush drive needs to be spaced also. if not measure it and have it made. the outer spacers locate the wheel and should be a nice fit in the swingarm.

      there should be no side forces applied to the races when the axle is torqued to spec.

      It never ceases to amaze why people ask for advice then when I give it they either ignore it or argue against it.
      But then I don't know all that much about TL's

      wwjd.......what would jimmy do.
