Rear Wheel Bearing
« on: 22 October, 2017, 18:45:43 »
Recently removed the rear wheel from my GSXS1000, and found that the sprocket carrier bearing did not have it's own grease cap behind the dust seal, the ones in the hub are OK.

anyway I replaced it & the seal just incase :-).

(ps:there are NO circlip's holding any of the bearings in place)



ALSO
the wheel went back in so easily too. :)

Nice job. Be thankful you noticed before you started the bike up again.. :o
