How many miles have you guys got from yours? I'm in the process of replacing both front bearings and pads at 1300 miles. And just incase some of you don't know driving out the old race is a good time, right up there with a dentist visit or mild groin injury!

I had about 8000 miles on mine. Found 3 bad ones. Two fronts and one rear. Just wondering if wheel spacers help them wear out quicker? I pressed mine out. I would imagine they are fun to pound out. The press loaded pretty good to get them moving.
I believe wheel spacers have alot to do with it but Seth (Dessertcat) has had wheel spacers on for quite a while with no problems. Just my take on it.

I have 7200 miles on mine and my bearings are shot .I need to order new bearings. Any good place to buy new bearings.
There is a place here in Az that sells them on Ebay.

yes,wheel spacers and/or offset wheels will add load/wear to your axle brgs.the stock wheel offset is designed to carry the load centered on the brgs,same with cars trucks ect.the offset wether its in or out loads the brgs at an angle,increasing leverage and wear.add to that driving in water ect,well there you go. 8000 miles tho thats pretty impressive.and yes a press is the correct tool for the job!

All balls makes some really good aftermarket ones.

I bought an oe bearing from a place in tennesse through ebay then found a local motorcycle shop stocks the bearing packaged as a Moose so I bought one there too. Apparently its a common atv bearing used on a few different makes. Some of the guys on highlifter aren't too happy with all balls products, but I looked close at the Moose package and it's made by all balls.
