FRONT WHEEL BEARING, AXLE, AND SPEEDOMETER DRIVE PARTS:

wb2) Original and aftermarket wheel and axle parts, bearings, and seals will restore that like-new ride and feel to your machine.

Note that if you plan to replace the bearing yourself, that removal of pressed-in bearings such as these can be rather difficult without special tools. We have individual removal/driver tools as well as an 8-piece bearing removal tool kit to help make this job easier, and which are listed further below.


How to check for worn annular ("ring-shaped") bearings:

- With the wheel off the ground, grab the tire with hands opposite each other. If the axle is pointing at your navel, push one hand away and pull the other toward you, then reverse the motion. If you feel play, the bearings are shot.
- Or with the wheel off the bike, stick your finger in the axle hole and rotate. If you feel anything "crunchy," the bearings are shot. Do both sides of the wheel.
- Worn wheel bearings can make the wheel "wobble", feel like it's out of balance, not allow the back to track straight, or can make it feel as though the bike has a tire low on air.


Wheel Bearing Removal:

NOTE: if using our ever-so-handy wheel bearing removal split-collar driver tools, then you can ignore all of this!:

- Use a long punch (should have a good edge) or the bearing removal tools that we offer.
- Remove any circlips or retainers.
- Insert the punch into the wheel and catch the edge of the bearing on the other side. Using a hammer, hit the punch and work around the entire circumference of the bearing. The bearing and seal will eventually be pushed out of the wheel hub.
- The second bearing can be removed using a punch, a long socket or other suitable driver.

NOTE: bearings will be damaged during the removal process and should not be reused. The hammer blows transmit their impact through the balls causing small flat spots, which will cause the bearing to quickly fail if reused.

Inspection:

- Inner Spacer: Check the bore to make certain it is clean and the axle easily passes through it. Check each end for wear and burrs. The edges must be square to seat properly against the new bearings.
- Wheel Hub: Clean the hub, removing any dirt and corrosion. Make certain not to remove metal. This will adversely affect bearing fit.
- Outer wheel spacers: Clean the outer wheel spacers and inspect them for wear on either end as well as wear on the outer surface where it makes contact with the seal. If the spacers are excessively worn they should be replaced.


Wheel Bearing Installation:

NOTE1: Improper installation will cause bearing damage and dramatically reduce bearing life.

NOTE2: Freezing the bearing overnight and Heating the wheel hub will cause the hub to expand slightly and will make bearing installation much easier. Make sure the area of the hub that the bearing will be installed into is clean, free of any nicks or burrs or flaws. Polish lightly with 400-grit (or finer) paper for a silky smooth finish, and apply a thin film of lubricant to this area before driving the bearing home properly and evenly.

The three simple rules to bearing installation are:

1. Apply pressure ONLY to the outer race of the bearing.
2. Apply pressure evenly so the bearing remains square to the wheel hub.
3. Remember to place the inner spacer between the bearings, and make sure to re-install or acquire the proper SPACER FLANGE for your application and model. This thin, flat, flanged spacer fits over one end of the spacer tube, and is vital to proper wheel bearing orientation and performance. Because it is so small, it is easily lost or mis-placed during wheel dis-assembly.


Definitions: All bearings that we offer are high-speed, single-row ball bearings. Roller-element bearings (ball bearings and roller bearings) are rated according to the standards and specifications of the Annular Bearing Engineers Committee (ABEC), and are graded by how precisely they are machined to their dimensional tolerances. Although other factors come into play in determining the "quality" of a bearing----such as the type and quality of the grease that the bearing is packed with----for all practical purposes, you can consider a bearing with a higher ABEC rating number to be a better quality bearing (1 being the lowest and 7 being the highest for metric-sized bearings). And the more precisely a bearing is machined and assembled, the more costly it will tend to be.

"Standard-duty" bearings are rated at least to the ABEC-1 standard for bearing design tolerances, and thus for their reliability and longevity in these wheel bearing applications. Depending on usage and conditions, these bearings are good for 20 - 50,000 miles of "typical" use.

"Medium-duty" bearings are of the same type and grade as used by Yamaha originally, and meet their standards. Although nominally rated at an ABEC-1 standard, most will actually pass the ABEC-3 standard upon inspection. Depending on usage and conditions, these bearings are good for 50,000+ miles of "typical" use.

"Extreme-duty" bearings are rated at least to the ABEC-3 (or higher) standard for bearing design tolerances, and thus for their reliability and longevity in these applications. Depending on usage and conditions, these bearings are good for the lifetime of your bike with "typical" use

By the way, bearings are available that meet ABEC-5 and ABEC-7 standards, but they are outrageously expensive, as they are designed for ultra-duty applications, military equipment and the like, and are not offered by us.


Some thoughts on the factors that you want to consider when replacing wheel bearings are discussed here:

http://xjbikes.com/forums/index.php?threads/33443


Wheel bearings fail for a number of different reasons:

- old age, usage greater than their intended life expectancy.
- improper installation techniques (surest and quickest way to kill bearings!). This includes banging on the inner race (the "inner ring") or over-torquing the axle retaining bolts.
- environmental contamination, especially moisture intrusion caused by high-pressure spray washers which force water in and grease out of the races.
- extreme use (racing, etc.) that generate heat and loads greater than the bearing grade is designed for.
- too little, too much, or incorrect type of grease. Although many bearings are sold as "sealed" bearings, for the longest life and best performance, they should periodically be cleaned and re-greased. Too much grease is a bad thing, as it causes the balls to have to "fight" their way through all of the grease, building heat, and thus shortening the bearing life. Most bearings require a 30-40% "fill rate" in their cavity to be properly lubricated, with a high-temp, high-load, water resistant grease such as our HCP8608 Red Moly Grease.


Finally, ALWAYS replace at least the wheel axle "castle nut" COTTER PINS whenever they have been removed.

REAR WHEEL BEARINGS, AXLE, AND CLUTCH HUB PARTS:

wb2) Original and aftermarket wheel and axle parts, bearings, and seals will restore that like-new ride and feel to your machine.

Note that if you plan to replace the bearing yourself, that removal of pressed-in bearings such as these can be rather difficult without special tools. We have individual removal/driver tools as well as an 8-piece bearing removal tool kit to help make this job easier, and which are listed further below.


How to check for worn annular ("ring-shaped") bearings:

- With the wheel off the ground, grab the tire with hands opposite each other. If the axle is pointing at your navel, push one hand away and pull the other toward you, then reverse the motion. If you feel play, the bearings are shot.
- Or with the wheel off the bike, stick your finger in the axle hole and rotate. If you feel anything "crunchy," the bearings are shot. Do both sides of the wheel.
- Worn wheel bearings can make the wheel "wobble", feel like it's out of balance, not allow the back to track straight, or can make it feel as though the bike has a tire low on air.


Wheel Bearing Removal:

NOTE: if using our ever-so-handy wheel bearing removal split-collar driver tools, then you can ignore all of this!:

- Use a long punch (should have a good edge) or the bearing removal tools that we offer.
- Remove any circlips or retainers.
- Insert the punch into the wheel and catch the edge of the bearing on the other side. Using a hammer, hit the punch and work around the entire circumference of the bearing. The bearing and seal will eventually be pushed out of the wheel hub.
- The second bearing can be removed using a punch, a long socket or other suitable driver.

NOTE: bearings will be damaged during the removal process and should not be reused. The hammer blows transmit their impact through the balls causing small flat spots, which will cause the bearing to quickly fail if reused.

A fine guide to wheel bearing replacement can be reviewed at:

and

http://www.xj4ever.com/wheel%20bearing% ... cement.pdf


Inspection:

- Inner Spacer: Check the bore to make certain it is clean and the axle easily passes through it. Check each end for wear and burrs. The edges must be square to seat properly against the new bearings.
- Wheel Hub: Clean the hub, removing any dirt and corrosion. Make certain not to remove metal. This will adversely affect bearing fit.
- Outer wheel spacers: Clean the outer wheel spacers and inspect them for wear on either end as well as wear on the outer surface where it makes contact with the seal. If the spacers are excessively worn they should be replaced.


Wheel Bearing Installation:

NOTE1: Improper installation will cause bearing damage and dramatically reduce bearing life.

NOTE2: Freezing the bearing overnight and Heating the wheel hub will cause the hub to expand slightly and will make bearing installation much easier. Make sure the area of the hub that the bearing will be installed into is clean, free of any nicks or burrs or flaws. Polish lightly with 400-grit (or finer) paper for a silky smooth finish, and apply a thin film of lubricant to this area before driving the bearing home properly and evenly.

The three simple rules to bearing installation are:

1. Apply pressure ONLY to the outer race of the bearing.
2. Apply pressure evenly so the bearing remains square to the wheel hub.
3. Remember to place the inner spacer between the bearings, and make sure to re-install or acquire the proper SPACER FLANGE for your application and model. This thin, flat, flanged spacer fits over one end of the spacer tube, and is vital to proper wheel bearing orientation and performance. Because it is so small, it is easily lost or mis-placed during wheel dis-assembly.


Definitions: All bearings that we offer are high-speed, single-row ball bearings. Roller-element bearings (ball bearings and roller bearings) are rated according to the standards and specifications of the Annular Bearing Engineers Committee (ABEC), and are graded by how precisely they are machined to their dimensional tolerances. Although other factors come into play in determining the "quality" of a bearing----such as the type and quality of the grease that the bearing is packed with----for all practical purposes, you can consider a bearing with a higher ABEC rating number to be a better quality bearing (1 being the lowest and 7 being the highest for metric-sized bearings). And the more precisely a bearing is machined and assembled, the more costly it will tend to be.

"Standard-duty" bearings are rated at least to the ABEC-1 standard for bearing design tolerances, and thus for their reliability and longevity in these wheel bearing applications. Depending on usage and conditions, these bearings are good for 20 - 50,000 miles of "typical" use.

"Medium-duty" bearings are of the same type and grade as used by Yamaha originally, and meet their standards. Although nominally rated at an ABEC-1 standard, most will actually pass the ABEC-3 standard upon inspection. Depending on usage and conditions, these bearings are good for 50,000+ miles of "typical" use.

"Extreme-duty" bearings are rated at least to the ABEC-3 (or higher) standard for bearing design tolerances, and thus for their reliability and longevity in these applications. Depending on usage and conditions, these bearings are good for the lifetime of your bike with "typical" use

By the way, bearings are available that meet ABEC-5 and ABEC-7 standards, but they are outrageously expensive, as they are designed for ultra-duty applications, military equipment and the like, and are not offered by us.


Some thoughts on the factors that you want to consider when replacing wheel bearings are discussed here:

http://xjbikes.com/forums/index.php?threads/33443


Wheel bearings fail for a number of different reasons:

- old age, usage greater than their intended life expectancy.
- improper installation techniques (surest and quickest way to kill bearings!). This includes banging on the inner race (the "inner ring") or over-torquing the axle retaining bolts.
- environmental contamination, especially moisture intrusion caused by high-pressure spray washers which force water in and grease out of the races.
- extreme use (racing, etc.) that generate heat and loads greater than the bearing grade is designed for.
- too little, too much, or incorrect type of grease. Although many bearings are sold as "sealed" bearings, for the longest life and best performance, they should periodically be cleaned and re-greased. Too much grease is a bad thing, as it causes the balls to have to "fight" their way through all of the grease, building heat, and thus shortening the bearing life. Most bearings require a 30-40% "fill rate" in their cavity to be properly lubricated, with a high-temp, high-load, water resistant grease such as our HCP8608 Red Moly Grease.


Finally, ALWAYS replace at least the wheel axle "castle nut" COTTER PINS whenever they have been removed.

This is the incredibly thin flanged shimming washer on the right side of the spacer tube, behind the right side wheel bearing. A necessary part and one that is easily damaged during bearing removal or forgotten during replacement. NOTE: the original "spacer flange" is larger in diameter than this replacement, but the original is trapped in a secondary dwell cut into the wheel below the bearing pocket on the right side. The replacement does the same job; however, it needs to be installed further onto the spacer tube so that it misses the "land" for the original and just does its spacing off the inside of the casting itself. Then it works fine. It's only there to make the tube line up with the axle.

WHEEL BEARING/AXLE TOOLS:

NOTE: SOME OF THE FOLLOWING TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL!!: some tools are a one-time or infrequent use tool, so it may be more economical for you to rent them from us, rather than to purchase outright. Please see the rental  section within the THE TOOLBOX section of our catalog at:

http://xjbikes.com/forums/index.php?threads/xj-parts-catalog-section-p-the-toolbox.44630

and review the availability and procedures in the TOOL RENTAL section.


A cheap and simple method for bearing removal and installation involves heating the bearing (so the ID of the race grows fractionally) while also cooling the shaft (so its OD shrinks). The combination of these two methods can make bearing work amazingly easier:

heating:



shrinking:



These tricks work well for steering head bearing replacement, wheel bearing replacement, tranny gears, etc. FOr wheel bearings, you of course want to shrink the bearing and heat (somehow) the wheel hub (a good heat gun is an amazing tool...........).



Wheel Bearing Removal Tool Kit:

Sold individually or as a complete shop set, these 'split-collar" SPLIT-COLLAR BEARING PULLERS AND DRIFT TOOLS make removing wheel bearings a pleasure rather than a chore! No more trying to find the proper size and length drift rod and then clumsily using it inside a long, blind tool.........that's just "too" old-skool. These pullers are simply placed within the bearing shaft hole, the drift rod is entered into the split collar slot, you give the rod a good whack with a hammer, and out she comes! Turns a pain-in-the-butt procedure into a 1-minute operation. NOTE: since these pullers work by "grabbing" onto the inner bearing race, once they are used to remove a bearing, the bearing is no longer re-usable.

Super-Penetrant Fluids and Lubricants:

Sometimes, the toughest part of working on a vehicle is battling the effects of time: seized fasteners, caused by rust, corrosion, and other factors, turns what should be a 5-minute effort into a 50-minute (or more) chore, complete with rounded-off, ruined, or snapped fasteners, e-z outs, heli-coil inserts, and more.........and that's just not right.

While the proper use of our various Anti-Seize products will prevent these nightmares from occurring in the future, you're stuck in the here-and-now, and the best way to handle these obstacles is to have the proper tools at the stand-by; and in the case of fastener seizure, the proper "tool" is a can or two of our SUPER PENETRATING LUBRICANTS at the ready; a couple of squirts, a little bit of time-----perhaps some heat for those really nasty situations----and you're on your way again, hopefully not too much worse for the experience.....

Great for use on all fasteners, fork tube cap bolts, intake and exhaust manifolds bolts, studs, and nuts, lock cylinder tumblers, or anywhere an un-cooperative fastener can be found. Can even be used to help un-seize frozen engines!

Be aware that these products are not your typical, garden-variety, run-of-the-mill "retail" type products; these are designed an used as industrial- and military-strength products, meaning they have special formulations that include a dollop more of the "good stuff" within them to solve the toughest seizure problems imaginable (the "good stuff" ingredients cost more, and it is those compounds that are left out of or reduced in concentration in "retail" level consumer products).

NOTE: unless otherwise specified, all of the following products can only be shipped via ground transport (which thus eliminates the Priority Mail level of service for this item) and cannot (and will not----don't even ask!) be shipped outside of the continental USA. Additionally, there may be a per-package weight or quantity restriction, and thus multiple-unit orders of this product may have to be shipped in separate packages and will incur additional shipping charges.


HCP10331 Aftermarket standard-duty PENETRATING LUBRICANT, in a generous 16-ounce aerosol can. Oil-based lubricant penetrates down into spaces of one-millionth of an inch to handle the most reluctant seizures. Actually dissolves the rust and corrosion that causes the seizure; lubricates and displaces moisture to prevent rust re-formation. This product is what we use and recommend for freeing stuck fork tube cap bolts and other such challenging fasteners.
$ 24.95

HCP11974 Aftermarket super-duty PENETRATING LUBRICANT, in a generous 13-ounce aerosol can. Same as our standard-duty formula above, but also includes graphite to not only enhance and speed up the penetrant action, but also gets down into the pores of the metal for the greatest possible lubrication possible. The cat's-meow of penetrating fluids, can even be used to un-seize frozen engines or as an engine assembly lube! This fluid is also a great choice for use as a drive cable lubricant.
$ 26.95

HCP10333 Aftermarket extreme-duty PENETRATING LUBRICANT, in a generous 16-ounce aerosol can. Same as our standard-duty formula above, but also includes liquid silicone to enhance and speed up the penetrant action. This product is also an exceptional choice for use as a control-cable lubricant.

Rust Removal and Prevention Fluids:

rr4) Concentrated RUST REMOVER magically dissolves rust on all iron-based metals. Spray or wipe directly onto rusty parts, or immerse the items in a container full of this solution (diluted), let it work, then rinse off. Highly concentrated, easy to use, leaves the metal surfaces grease-free and ready for further processing or finishing. GREAT FOR DE-RUSTING THE INSIDE OF GAS TANKS!

NOTE: unless otherwise specified, all of the following products can only be shipped via ground transport (which thus eliminates the Priority Mail level of service for this item) and cannot (and will not----don't even ask!) be shipped outside of the continental USA. Additionally, there may be a per-package weight or quantity restriction, and thus multiple-unit orders of this product may have to be shipped in separate packages and will incur additional shipping charges.

HCP12358 Aftermarket RUST DESTROYER FLUID, in a 16-ounce plastic bottle. Best to transfer into an old windex spray bottle (etc.) and use with a spray nozzle. After use, it is recommend that the de-rusted parts be immediately painted (or similar) or coated with fogging oil, lubricant, or other surface finish to prevent flash surface-rusting of the newly cleaned parts. Each:
$ 19.95

HCP11475 Aftermarket aerosol FOGGING OIL, top end lubricant coats, clings, and protects metal surfaces against rust and prevents ring seizure when an extended period of non-use is expected (winter storage). Spray directly into cylinders (thru the spark plug holes), rotate the engine over a few turns with the starter motor (but with plugs still removed-----do not allow the engine to start!) to spread the oil about, and your pistons, cylinders, rings will live happily ever after...............or, at least until you start up the engine next spring! 10-ounce can will fog many a cylinder.

WHEELS AND TIRES:

-- Wheels and Tires.


WHEELS AND TIRES:

Unlike with automotive wheels and tires, there's no really good reasons why you can't do as good a job of changing tires and balancing your wheel/tire combo as a shop can. Although all the fancy tire dis-mount - mount machinery and spin-balancers are very impressive looking, they also add quite a bit of cost to the process (call around in your local area for pricing and you'll see what I mean!).

By spending some labor time and effort yourself (for wheel removal and tire dis-mount and re-mounting; those are the big consumer of your time), the money you can save can easily pay for the cost of upgrading to some much nicer, high-quality tires, which is where the true safety and performance gains can be realized.

We offer a complete variety of all the tools and products needed for you to perform these jobs. Also, be aware the best time to inspect and replace your wheel bearings are when the wheels are off the bike for a tire change, so don't forget to review those items, too.

NOTE: If you feel unqualified in performing such actions, then by all means don't attempt these tasks yourself; however, if you can follow instructions and are have the patience and skills needed to do things correctly, then these tasks----and savings----are certainly achievable, even if it's your first time.

Wheel Weights and Wheel Balancing Tools:

HCP10490 Aftermarket WHEEL BALANCER. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to spin-balance motorcycle wheels to achieve satisfactory results. With this simple tool, and a pair of hi-rise common jackstands ("hi-rise" means more than 15" lift off the floor level), you can professionally balance your own tire/wheel assembly. High quality tool-steel axle, low-drag bearings, and precision-machined wheel holder collets provide you with the means to spin-balance all XJ-series wheels in a matter of minutes. Set-up and balancing directions are included. Properly cared for (meaning: don't drop it or beat on it!), this balance will last a lifetime. WARNING: this device (and your knowledge of how to use it correctly) will tend to make you real popular with other bike owners............
