lots of bikes from 80cc to 1200cc
Current : ZX11

Need to replace the rear wheel bearings

This past wed I started to hear a popping sound at lower speeds so I put the bike up and drove the truck ( gas prices ). at first I thought the chain needed cleaning / lube because it been weeks from the last time I did it. I re-adjusted the chain and was moving the rear tire and all sounded well.

But then I tightened the axle bolt and the popping came back...

It looks like the rear wheel bearings are shot. Specificially the disk brake side ( it does not move by hand ). The sprocket side moves ok and the sprocket carrier moves great.

I think this may be one of those fixes I have a shop do just because i'm irritated at the bike and was hoping for a few weekends of no bike work. but has anyone changed the rear bearings on an 05 Bandit 1200 wheel? Did you have to use a bearing puller? I was looking at the spacer between the bearings and it does not give much room to get an extention in and hit it after you heat up the hub... How much are the pullers?

LOL maybe I will take to pedal bike to work for this week just so I dont have $100 fill ups on the truck....
That may be your first bike....but its not your last....

You can drive them out from the opposite side one at a time. Make sure to replace all 3; the 2 wheel bearings and the one in the hub. I either have the bearings in stock or can get them in one day if you need them.
