Rear Bearings
« on: 13 September, 2014, 01:13:34 PM »
my bike was beginning to feel quite lumpy and increased vibrations. I checked the bike over one evening and the rear tyre had some lateral movement. booked into garage and picked up this morning. One of the bearings was completely corroded and knackered. It was a sealed bearing so the water had got in and stayed in. (I don't use a pressure washer,  I don't clean bike offen at all). The other bearing had some slight movement but not too bad. All I can think is that using through two wet and icy winters has taken its toll. so remember to check on a regular basis!
