Yes, photos would be a good idea.
Can you machine the hole out and fit a larger OD (same ID) bearing from a bearing supplier?
How bad is it?

And for the record, my opinion of JB weld is that if it's going to be supporting any sort of load you are better off fixing it the right way.

it's a good lesson to all TT'rs to grease all of the swingarm and wheel bearings on a regular basis
Yep, good call Dave!
I've done mine several times and all are (thankfully) still like new.
I pull mine right apart, clean everything with gasoline, blow it all dry with compressed air, then re-grease with waterproof grease.

Be sure that you apply threadlocker and torque the bolts on reassembly. I had one come off during a ride. It was scary. Luckily, I was going slow but it could have been bad.

Thanks for the tip Navaho6.
I always torque mine correctly but I haven't been using threadlocker. I will from now on!

You get gasoline there? I though you could only buy petrol:smirk:
