Can anyone recommend a UK source for decent quality wheel bearings and seals.
OEM ones are the usual silly price and I'm a bit scared of cheap eBay stuff.

Cheers
Shep.

You legend Dave,

You need to stick that on your site chap :thumbup:


lol

I've got loads of 'stuff' to put on the site,

Touring fuel tank, touring rack and sub-frame, throttle body mods, head work, cams, general info etc etc etc.

But very busy, and it takes me ages to write up a web page :thumbdown:

It might get done this year, with a new front page etc.

Thanx Dave.

I use wemoto.com for bearings, seals etc. They have all parts listed by bike and supply Japanese Koyo bearings that I've always found good, next day delivery on most parts.

Thanks mate,
I found them and ordered from Webmoto the other night. Should be here tomorrow with any luck. :thumbup:
I recon 5mm depth must be specific to bikes? I found quite a few the right internal and external dimensions but only down to 7mm.

You can more than likely use wider seals,

You'll find out when you remove them :)


Thanx Dave.

Yellow Pages......bearing supplies
Very true, plus Google, eBay and many other sources of supplier info.
On the rare occasion that I stray away from OEM for a critical component I am happy to seek opinion and recommendation rather than take a lucky dip. There are several opinions on this site that I hold in high regard. :thumbup:
