Yes four of the 6204 and one of the 6205. Don't forget the 2RS bit. Fiver each ain't too bad http://www.qualitybearingsonline.com...KA4aAoGN8P8HAQ

Yes they're brands. European. Any decent bearing supplier should be able to get them.

2x 6204 in the front and rear, and 1x 6205 in the rear. Stay away from kits, such as AllBalls. Yes, SKF and FAG are manufacturers.

This'll drive the safety police nuts. Bearings showed no play, but were notchy. I popped the seals, flushed with brake cleaner and air, regreased.

It's a holiday here and I have nearly 1000 miles to do for my work in the next 4 days.

We'll see. If my triumph replacement part does indeed arrive on Wed as expected, I'll use the new part. This will be used in case it doesn't.

Hopefully the four rubber skid plate standoffs arrive on schedule as well. The dealer has a BMW part that looks identical - but only two. Might use two of those in the back then epoxy two of the broken ones for the front...

Sitting here in a hotel room while looking at the rest of my group's pictures are killing me!

Will these attach to the bike the way it is or do I need some sort of luggage rack? My XR650 came with saddlebags on it from the previous owner so I'm unfamiliar with this process. I just want that carrier so I can bring my dog,
Waiting to go to work this morning...

Since your pan will hold oil now that it is JB Welded, I would just M8 bolt the skid plate to the oil pan, connect everything back up and just ride. You are going to replace the oil pan anyway, so what if it takes another hit? Have the dealer forward your parts to your house and you can replace it when you get home.

Get out and ride K!! (This is my $0.02 from my couch in suburbia... )

And bring more JB Weld....

I sort of agree with that. But I'd be thinking of securing it with some wire to the footpegs at the back and pulling it tight against a huge piece of closed cell foam so that it's got a good cushion against the repaired sump.
Hope you get back out there soon.

I just replaced front wheel bearings at 11,000 miles. IMHO the spacers are a lousy design with no lip. For some reason the spacer on the right does not sit flush on the fork and if I push it tight the brake fiscal drags. Something is not right or not good enough with the front axle. 11,000 mostly street miles.

The spacers are a great design as; when they get a groove worn in them you can turn them around and put the smooth bit under the seal. The material could be harder though.
What's a "brake fiscal"?
I suspect what you're seeing is perfectly normal because the spindle clamps all the spacers and wheel together and the fork leg (with the pinch bolts) will sit slightly off the spacer when it is aligned in its bushes correctly. It really is a perfectly good design when you understand how it's supposed to look.

That was meant to say brake disk. If I push the right fork to the spacer and tighten the pinch bolts the disk will not align with the caliper. My DR650 has 14,000 miles and lives in water, dirt and rocks and is still on the factory sealed one one side bearings. The DR's spacers have a decent lip that snaps into the seal. They do not fall out as easy when mounting and seem to seal better with the lip on the spacer. I think, and I am no expert, that a steel spacer with a lip would be an improvement. I am glad I luckily noticed the bad bearings while washing the bike on the center stand. It sounded clicky so I checked much sooner that I normally would have. It has been through water a few times but I never expected them to be bad already. I could not spin the bearings by hand.

Every time I have need to re-install a wheel, I clean and pack that whole area with grease to prevent water getting to the bearings. I don't do a ton of water crossing with mine but I do the same thing on the Husky and other dirt bikes that have/do and it's worked just fine.
