94 cr 250 eating rear wheel bearings

Recommended Posts

ok so i changed the wheel bearings in my cr because the break side blew right out. the hub was messed up a little  but i cleaned it up a little to take the bur out and the bearing went in kind of easy but i thought it would be ok. i put it all back together and rode it for like 1 hr then i noticed it was blown out again. when i wen to take it back apart the axle was lose so i thought thats what did it so i got an old bearing that was still good and put it in and made sure it was tight this time then tooke it for like a 1/2 hour  and it did it again and again when i went to take it apart the axle was lose so i think it is just loosing up and doing that to the bearing or could it be because my hub is too messed up ?

Are you making sure to install axel collar (spacer) between the bearing in the hub.

Note: make sure it is not to short. It should be the the same length as the bearings are spaced apart. If it is too short th bearngs will side loaded as you tighten the axel nut.

i dont have #9 on that link u gave me would that matter

Yeah, it kinda matters. That piece of metal tube keeps the bearings from collapsing when you tighten the axle nut.

would the bearings still go in and stop if i did not have that or would they just go all the way through because mine go in and stop where they should be? i am sorry for all the stupid question i just got into bike i always had quads :)

yes you must have it. if not, you are going to keep messing bearings up.

 

your bearings set against a lip in the hub, so no they will not go through.

remove your wheel, check the hole where the axle goes. is it the same diameter as the axle the whole way through?

if not, buy #9, new bearings, a manual and a few beers.

Cool picture, but not quite detailed enough to see if the collar is still there.

 

Maybe if you zoomed in a little on the rear wheel. :)

I put the tube from my buddy's spare kx wheel and put lock tight on the axle nut and I rode it for like 4 hrs and it seems to be ok now :) !
