replace bearings or not
Permalink  
 


whats the likelyhood of any of the gearbox bearings failing? about to re-assemble my engine- after bottom end rebuild. the bearings all look in ok condition but like some thoughts as to just replacing or leaving?

Also when replacing bearings-do i put some oil in the seats or just slot them in bare?

thanks

Mate for the price of 20 for the lot. All Koyo as well. And for the five minutes it takes.

Piece of mind.

Plus I suppose i all depends on how it's been rid and the amount oil that's been used.

When I did mine everything went into the oven for 10 minutes then they just droped straight in!

yeah priced up set 15 all in...what sealant did u use to seal 2 crank halves?

i believe looking at state of the engine when i got bike-it probably was ragged everyhere and not maintained properly.

I wouldn't know off the top of my head. It's something Norfe recommended. I don't know whether its' worked or not. It didn't work for my gearbox side case but that was missing a bolt.

I can find out tonight when I get home if you want

i always use threebond 1104 liquid gasket, its never failed me yet.

silicone based instant gasket can be unreliable as it tends to ball up and creates an uneven contact between the mating surfaces.
