Has anyone got an actual pic of item #2 I cant find a source and want to see if I can fab this little bracket. Cheers

Hi Ujeni, on a side note, what speaker cab is that? Is it a vintage Marshall?

wheel bearings

Hello all,

looks like my rear wheel bearing set got tired after Alaska/ Yukon ride...

Now for this RD07, are the NAPA ( SKF 6204-2ZJ) ok to use? THey are double sealed . Advantage of double seal vs single? The dust /oil/grease seal would be the main barrier anyway, no?
Any experience with napa bearings? Or better to go with OEM...

they are the same set for an RD04 , right? As a matter of fact, aren't they the same for the transalp as well?

As always thank you

Salut Alain. Not sure if they're the same for all three but since you have all three there in your garage, you tell us. Double sealed would be my choice. My method to replace them would be to extract the bearings, measure with calipers and replace with same size. I'm sure you have a shop dedicated to bearings of all types there. I have one here. The key is to have the right tool, a quality bearing removal tool, not a screwdriver. I have this setup.

Jim,

I'm pretty good with tools but haven't ever seen the bearing removal stuff.

How does is work? Does the tapered rod get driven into the slot?

My method involves heat, brute force and a bit of ignorance.

Hello Alain. SKF is a quality bearing...one of the best, but I'm not so sure about that part # you posted. I would use the #'s is the following link.
http://www.atic.org/faq/bearings.php

ModelFrontRear 'left'Rear 'right'Rear 'sprocket'
RD036202-2RS1/C3 (2x)6203-2RS1/C36203-2RS1/C36204-2RS1/C3
RD04/RD076203-2RS1/C3 (2x)6303-2RS1/C36203-2RS1/C36204-2RS1/C3


You need one each of the following 6303-2RS1/C3, 6203-2RS1/C3, 6204-2RS1/C3. One of those is for the sprocket which you might as well do while you are in there.

Go to any Bearing Supply Store in your yellow pages and they will have those bearings. SKF is not necessary however it is recommended as with Koyo, NSK or any of those Japanese made berarings. Avoid Chinese made.

An installation tip is to heat the wheel hub and freeze the bearing so that it will drop in easy. For removel I have used a blind bearing puller that has a slide hammer setup...a bit different than Jim's but the same principle.

Jim, Wayne,

Still need to order the seals.

Nice tools, I have used the "Ray" method in the past
