    Does anybody have or know where I can get bearing sizes for the front end from wheel hub to wheel hub and everything in between. I'm thinking I can get them cheaper than dealer prices. also a recommendation on better than stock cv shafts for the front LH and RH. To be specific I'm looking for bearing and seal sizes. THANKS

    Are you going to install them yourself?
    My bet is you wont be able to find the sizes without removing them yourself and measuring them.

    I found the bearings sold singly at auto parts stores (online) without the whole assembly. Don't know as they had the size, but they didn't make you buy them pre-pressed. If that's what you're looking for.

    Probably listed wrong. I've changed 4 of these and have a press. I don't see how you could press the bearing out of the flanged mount that bolts it to the spindle. Maybe I'll try it for kicks with one of my old ones I haven't thrown away yet. The outer race of the bearing is sealed and the inner isn't on these too which is kind of odd. I've used SKF part number FW194 on all 4 changes. I know GMB makes these too and they are probably cheaper but I also have seen a lot of premature failures of GMB hubs on other makes.

    can't use a puller?
    EDIT: Oh.. I had the rear bearing in mind I guess. A more extravagant part if I remember the complaints correctly. Never had to do any of those myself.

    I know I'm jumping the gun here, but just trying to get everything together for when its warm enough to ride the motorcycle to work. I'm looking for a minimum of downtime cause I can see 7 day work weeks coming till fall. Thought maybe somebody saved their boxes from fixes and had the numbers. I guess not too many people have had to tighten up their front ends yet, or they are willing to shell out the big bucks to have somebody do it for them. Maybe I'll just have to suck it up.....:notsure:
