Re: Wheel Bearings

Hey All -

I need to replace my wheel bearings. Where can I get new ones cheap? Need a set of rear wheel bearings and dustseals for a 1998 Superhawk rear wheel and the same for a 2002 CBR954 front..

Thanks!

Re: Wheel Bearings

My bearings for the rear of my 929 were only about $10 each. I didn't buy dust seals. Bought them from Dave Mungenast Powersports in St Louis.

Re: Wheel Bearings

Try ALL BALLZ bearings out of Parts Unlimited I think..... A set of 4 costs around the price of 1 Honda bearing.

Re: Wheel Bearings

Are you talking about aftermarket bearings? If you are, bearings aren't that expensive to begin with - seems like a very important part on which to save 2 or 3 bucks.

Re: Wheel Bearings

Thanks everyone for the help!

For future reference the 929/954 front bearing part number (universal to any bearing shop) is 6005. And of course you want a sealed version. I know you guys wont care but the Superhawk rear rim is 6024uu or 6024rsr

Re: Wheel Bearings

How often do bearings need to be changed?

Whenever they are worn. Perform the tolerance check, located in the Service Manual, when changing tires and you will know when they are beginning to wear beyond allowed limits.

I checked with my mechanic and he says he does the check every time someone gets new tires, and i just did... duhhh.. i didnt even know they needed to be changed.. im more of a rider than a mechanic.

Re: Wheel Bearings

Any chance you know the size on the rear bearings for the 929 as well?

Re: Wheel Bearings

This thread is over 7 years old, I doubt any of the people who replied still use this forum!

Ronayers.com should be able to provide a part number, or do some eBay searching and see what type of bearings are offered for your bike. Bearings seem to have standard type codes from what I found, e.g. 6204 2RS (the 2RS means 2 rubber seals, from what I have seen).

If you can find the type you need, you can search for these bearings which may be cheaper than peope selling the same thing as 'motorcycle wheel bearings'. The bearing code is often found somewhere on the bearing itself, so you could also try looking at the bearings already in your wheel.

Re: Wheel Bearings

Hehehe only saw that it was that old after I posted, sorry!

I spoke to the guys at Honda and they advised that I should just take the wheels off and tag the bearings along to our local bearing guru who sells new ones for like $3.00 (yea once converted it seems insignificant, but R25.00 is actually a pretty decent price over here!)

Thanks!

The fiche often includes bearing/seal dimensions or part numbers.

I agree though that it's always best to measure up the original bearings to be certain before ordering.

Re: Wheel Bearings

Right, The rear wheel uses 2x6005 on the hub and a 6205 on the crush drive/damper.
