Are my Bearings Shot

Recommended Posts

Hi i was just wondering if this is normal. When i hold the front brake and rock the bike back and fourth there is a little bit of play. Is it normal or is it time for new bearings?

Thanks

put your bike up on a stand and twist the tire back and forth to check for play side to side at all angles,

then roll the wheel keeping you hand on it slowll to check for any flat or hung up spots.

No problem i thought my head stem bearings where shot. i pulled them apart because they were feeling notchy so i grease them back up and slap it back together and i felt smooth i tried lifting the bottom clamp up and down for and movement and there was none. But when i put the forks and everything back together i notice the little bit of free play.

Well thats a relief.

Thanks
