ALL BALLS Rear Wheel bearings, problem?
Who among us has used the All Balls rear wheel bearing kit, part #25-1056 (KYA30-08A)?
And then had installation interference with the swing arm Width!
I think that the Left Hand bearings must have been .010-.020 inches Wider than the old OEM bearings! I Will Not remove them to measure them, but something is apparently incorrect.
I had to 'spread' the swing arm, to re-install the wheel. Could be a real pain on the trail!
78,323 miles on the OEM bearings and many, many rear tires. The sprocket bearing had just a bit of 'roughness'.
I also replaced rear sprocket, drive chain and rear brake pads.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 84,000+ miles & counting
