Front Wheel Bearing Question

4 posts in this topic

Had the bike on the stand last night checking everything over before todays ride. Noticed that the front wheel has a little play in it, but not side to side. I had the front brake on and had a little play forward and back(it's not the steering head). Time for new front bearings?

Agree with Steve check the disc brake, it's probably normal. To check for wheel bearing play gently move the tire from side to side with the bike on a stand & front wheel unloaded. If you feel a slight bit of play,the bearings are starting to go.
