Hub Bearings the easy way


Way Fast Whitey

*this is for the TT'ers without a bearing press*

if your rear/front wheel have play in them chances are your bearings in the hub are worn. i've used this method with great results.

1. remove the wheel from swingarm(for rear wheel)

2. get the old bearings out, a punch should work, just work around the bearing til it comes free.

3. go to your local hardware store, and buy a bolt long enough to go through the hub, 2 washers for the size of the bolt/nut, and 2 washers about the size of the new bearings(must be smaller then bearing, but the colser the size the better)

4.with the new bearings ready for installation, and the inside of the hub cleaned, you can start your new bearings inside the hub.

5.with the new bearings started in the right direction,put 1 small washer on the bolt, then follow with 1 large washer, fit this through the hub.

6. once the bolt is through the hub, put the other big washer on the bolt, then the small washer, then the nut, finger tighten.

7. get your apporiately sized deep socket on the nut and tighten, checking regularly to be sure the bearings are going in right.

8. once the bearings are seated, you can release the bolt and remove, reinstall on swingarm and do the same to the front.

good luck :applause:

      Rad Manufacturing is now one of our premier manufacturers and we thing you will be impressed especially when purchasing something as important as wheels for your best friend the KTM 950/990 Adventure or 950 Super Enduro.
      We aren't talking about just any bike we are talking about the bike that will go to the end of the world with you if you ask that from it.
      We want to help you make the legs on your adventure the strongest and most farkled set of legs you can get. RAD will help us with that.
      From mild to wild they have it all. Start off with their Billet Cush Drive hub and grace that with heavy duty stainless steel spokes.
      If you are up to it and we think you are you may want to oversize those spokes and add a +1 to the gauge which will save you from the wobbles.
      Finish that off with either a strong CACR Rim or our favorite rim of choice Sun Rim.
      Now that we have racked your brain with all of these choices we have added anodizing and powder-coating options to personalize it even further.
      From stock sized 4.25x18 rims to track ready 5.00x17 you have everything you need to build that custom rear wheel.
