  • Not again!

    Well I think my S ate another set of front wheel bearings again. This is the third set and it is the same bearing on the left hand side of the front wheel. I when riding I can hear a loud clicking and popping sound. Every time I have installed the bearings I have put them in the freezer for a hour or so then heat and greased the inside of the hub on the wheel. The bearings just simply press in by hand. I always torque to spec per the service manual. So I'm at a lost as to why this keeps happening.

    Re: Not again!

    After debating some opinions and suggestions, I have concluded that my bearing hub spacer is fooked up and is causing too much side load on the bearings when torqued to spec. I going to order a new spacer when I order bearings and seals.

        Rob do you have the spacer between the two bearing and did you press the down to the seat ridge in the hub. There should be no space between the bearing and the spacer. Spacer should not move around ,If there is clearance at the spacer the bearing are not seated.T.L.

          The spacer is fooked up. Both ends gouged up by a previous owner and I never thought that would affect the bearings. A new spacer is about $25 on cheapcycleparts.com.

            when you tighten the axle the center races of the bering get pushed inward , the outside races stay put. When you take out the old bearings out, look and see if there is more wear in on one side .get a new spacer .T.L.

                I have ordered from both sites in the past and cheapcycleparts was faster. Shipping time was a week compared to two - three weeks from ronayers.

                  Re: Not again!

                  My new seals, bearings, and spacer came in today. The old spacer measured 105.60 mm and the new one measured 106.6 mm. The old one looks like the axle must have been over tighten in the past crushing the ends of the spacer. Plus there was some nicks and scratches and it wouldn't slider over the axle without some force behind it.

                    Pics of the new and old spacer and old bearings.

                    New on the left, old on the right.






                    Old bearings. Can you guess which one went bad.

                      Wow that is really f*cked up. How could he have mangled it that much shorter.

                        quite simply by overtightening it. It's only alloy, a decent rattle gun in the hands of a numpty will fuck things quick smart.


                        check the bearings for grease Rob. I never relie on the factory stuff in there, even been supplied new bearings which had no grease in them I always clean the factory crap out and repack with a good quality product - at least I know it's done right then and never have to worry about it.
                        That goes for any bearings I buy, fishing reels, lawnmower wheels, kid's scooter etc.
