African Twin wheel bearings:
« on: April 18, 2020, 08:32:11 pm »
Hi everyone,

I now have about 9500 km on my 2017 AT, and now each time I climb on the bike I note a sound from the rear hub that can only be described as a read bearing failing... When I roll the wheel while on the center stand my worries are confirmed, but only if the bike was standing for a few days will the bearing show that itís slowly failing...

90% of my riding is off road, usually in very dusty conditions, and never to date washed my bike with a pressure washer, unless the agent did at a service...

Anyway anyone know what bearings sizes are used as I want to get the correct bearings before stripping...

Iím also considering to replace to front bearings too...

Any ideas...?

Parts manual shows that the two wheel bearings are 6204 (20x47x14mm) and the sprocket carrier bearing is 63/22 (22x56x16mm). All bearings should be 2RS ( two rubber seals).

Front bearings are 6004 (20x42x12mm )
