They're listed for over a $1000 bucks to replace compared to $300
for 49 state models, FYI.
Thanks for that, getting even a couple hundred for all of it would be really nice.

I'm having hard time finding wheel bearings. The front was easy - I got German made SKF locally at $11 a pop. The rear wheel is impossible to find in four major car part stores and an industrial supply store. The 22mmID and 44mm OD is available, but no one has the 22mm ID 50mmOD bearing.

I don't want to buy Chinese made piece online, and I'm sure not paying $60 for the Yami part

So, where do you all find your bearings?

Guys, I buffed my plastics pretty badly at the rear, is there anyway to restore them so they look like new? And if I want to paint my exhaust shield which paint should I use, something heat resistant?

Thanks

New ones, on line, aren't all that expensive.............. There is NO way to fix them once they are abused. Sorry.

I just noticed you are in Australia. I know getting parts shipped there can be a little expensive, and some places don't ship there, but here is one. They sell OEM parts for all brands. Someone from your neck of the woods, might chime in and be of more help.

So, where do you all find your bearings?

I'm looking to get a pirelli scorpion front tire on my bike. I do a short commute on road and most of my riding is over loose rocks and dirt. Should I go for a soft or hard tire?
