rear wheel

6 posts in this topic

Ive got a question. Ive recently bought a 2000 yz 426 and was told you had to replace the whole rear wheel when the bearings got bad instead of just replacing the bearings, and that it was a solid unit that the bearings were a part of the wheel. Any truth to this?

Did the same guy offer to sell you a bridge? Or a rear wheel , maybe?

It's BS. The wheel bearings are entirely serviceable.

I just did this when I redid my rear wheel (rim bent bad). I replaced my rim, spokes, sprocket bolts and bearings. But I had to dremel the last part of one of the bearing out of my hub after bending the bearing puller.. everything else was easy.

I would get a nice long punch and buy the bearing puller and after soaking it with a pbblaster type spray, then I would cut the race if it doesnt budge.

Good luck.

Wish I had poder coated the hub but I was trying to stay on a budjet.
