New Wheel Bearings
Written by rudyg1937 on 7/17/2010 at 09:36 am

I recommend OEM bearings instead of the cheaper after market. I had the shop,
not a Honda dealer, that sent my wheels out to be powder coated replace my
bearings while they had the wheels. I forget exactly how long but in under
5,000 miles I heard a noise in the front wheel. Sure enough the bearings were
rough. Then shortly afterwards the rear did the same. I replaced them with
OEM.

        I just took an old piece of hardened steel (maybe an old socket extension?), ground the end nice and square, and drove the old bearings out. No big deal at all. Then just gently tapped the new bearings in. May have used a socket between the h
