Re: Wheel bearing installation
I have always followed the manual and had no worries. Once you have it mounted up I suspect you'll see that all is well and it will rotate fine.
Here's some info jacked from another thread, compliments of mr305.
For re-installing the front wheel.
1. loosen the axel and pinch bolts on the forks.
2. tighten up the axel nut.
3. tighten up the pinch bolts on the side opposite from where the axel is inserted from.
4. pull the front brake and bounce the front forks up and down several times.
5. tighten up the other pinch bolts.
This should fix the problem if the front wheel was removed and re-installed.
