Lucky that tacho goes to 11000rpm aye

They arrived after about 8-9 days.
6 days from China.

Not too shabby.

Here's my post from when I replaced the bearings on Gus, if that is any use to you. Also contained bearing references,

Damn that would have saved me an hour of searching to find what size. I should've asked you in the first place

Replaced the front wheel bearings today. I couldn't for the life of me get a good enough edge of my 'punch' onto the inside race of the bearing. I ended up welding a blob with the old mig onto the bearing & it came out easily with a few taps.

I froze the new bearings & heated up the hub. Someone in another thread once referred to alloy as the best heat sink known to man. I have to agree. My heat gun was putting out over 200 deg & after about 3-4 mins the inside of the hub was still only around 60deg. I swear the other side of the hub was getting hotter
Anyway the 1st side went on OK & the second side the bearing half fell into the hole. Buttoned up & all good.
It's quite amazing really, with the brake calipers not touching the disc the wheel when moved spun around & around for minutes without stopping. I was mesmerised.


I went for a quick test ride & loved that feeling of freedom. Even did some Blitz motorcycles weaving along the road.

"half fell into the hole" doesn't sound optimal
There's some stuff called bearing retainer we used to use on pumps and hire gear. Also used to centre punch 3 or 4 divots into the alloy for really flogged out holes. It stops the hard bearing wearing away more of the soft alloy
T'was a mint day for a ride today

Looks like another mint day for riding. Unfortunately we have a house full of kids & Mrs padmei is crook. I really am going to get out for a short ride tho.
Going down to the supermarket for coffee this morning I looked at the hills & thought it would be a perfect weekend for riding the Heaphy. May have to do a spontaneous mid week trip very soon.

When I said the bearing half fell into the whole really meant I didn't have to use the car jack & 4x2 to seat it.

What is this fascination with the salad spoon? salad fork is dangerous, but the salad spoon is just a salad spoon.

Crook at home, too crook to even do Benelli stuff, but starting to get that KLR twitch so will have to go for a ride on that soon.

Going to have to go out Hori bay or Maungatapu to look for it.

You know when you lose your wallet, phone or kids? It's like that but with really important stuff instead.
