61917, it's the actual bearing number -no matter who manufactures it, it'll have that number - even the bearing sold by BMW will have that number on the bearing.
It's a world wide standard -
the C3 number is the tolerance allowed -

here in the UK, it costs £28 from BMW dealers -

I had a good 50miles of rough riding.. thought at first my front brakes were causing problem... so i rode to the next fuel up on my route to find the drive seal had gone and final drive fluid over everything... luck i did not loose the gears...

if it's rumbling, chances are it'll be the crown wheel output bearing -

you can fix this on the road - you need bearing 61917 C3, if the seal isn't leaking, you don't have to replace it - and look back in this thread, all you need to know on how to fix it in an emergency -

That is for the labor and bearings... turned into 570 in labor since the pinon bearings need to be replaced... they found one final new final drive for 1100$ or they would have to back order it... i did have to pay a good 40$ on over nighting the stuff... there was no reason to replace the entire thing with a mutiple of breaking other issues...

Alright now what?? I took mine apart to inspect bearing because of a slow oil leak. These bearings seem fine to me and the seal seems fine as well.



Could it be the O-ring? Seemed a little flimsy to me. Everything was clean as a whistle inside the housing.. Is there not supposed to be oil beyond the seal for the bearing. Meaning, is the O ring the final sealing point for final drive oil??

There is indeed oil being held in by the main seal and by the o ring. You would be able to see the oil leaking out of the seal when you take the wheel off. The o ring would leak around the two halves. My bearing didnt seem bad either, but tit was a bit loose. Be sure to lube the oring up and where it slips on. I used vaseline.

So are you saying the bearing being just a little loose caused the seal to fail?
I just finished putting on the new seal. I'm wondering what caused the seal to fail because my bearings seem ok. Time will tell and I'm riding sunday...heres hopin...

I'm thinking that maybe when the bearing has enough wear and I am loaded heavy the wheel sits more crooked and oil mayhave an easeir time getting past the lip of the seal when the wheel is cocked. Mine dripped the day I carried a heavy load up a bumpy mountain road.
