2008 model 1200 gsa front wheel clunk
« on: December 19, 2018, 08:57:30 am »
So i was sitting on scoot the other day rocking bike back and forth, when pulling front brakes amd rocking i hear and feel a distinct clunk noise, after closer inspection i see what can be seen on the first clip, second clip is of axle shaft in bearing, seems to have play.

Thought wheel bearings, replaced them still the same
Question:
Normal am i chasing ghosts?
I checked yoke / neck bearing, no obvious movement detected when i pull on forks

Any ideas, i will be booking bike into Jughead whem back from holiday

Thanks

Dis jou voorwiel se floating brake discs man....
Trap jou agter briek diep in, en rock die bike vorentoe en agtertoe weer n keer, en jy sal hoor dis weg  :thumleft:

Ai ai, dinge stadig daar in die Hage vandag  :imaposer:
