Hot frontwheel hubs
Posted June 20, 2007 - 01:31 AM
It doesnt seem like anything is stuck, and the wheel rolls fine, but when i drive it gets VERY hot, i burn my fingers touching it.
Any suggestions, or is it just to change the bearings?
I also wondered if there is any forkprotector to be bought that fits so the wheel doesnt touch them, no i have 110/70 - 17, and the wheel barely touches it.
I am a newbie just to mention it...

Its a Talon Hub btw, and Excel rims.
The tire rolls easy until i start tighten the bolt, so it may be the spacer as you mention.

It was that speedometer "thingy" attached to the wheel that caused the problem.
There was a 2mm differene from the original hub and the Talon on the motard rim, so the rubber bottomed on the rim, so i grinded off 2 mm and problem was solved.
Not sure why it was so but...
Thanx for replies.
