You could get in touch with CAG, he always has those in stock.

You want the entire hub, correct?

right lets see, just how many peeps rear wheel bearings have gone? mines a 05 1000s has done 5300 miles and was registered in 06 , so its been on road for less than 2 summers!!! i know for sure johns has just gone has well, what im trying to ascertain is this. have mv at the factory fitted cheap and inferior wheel bearings in a batch of their bikes? does anyone with later models have the same problem? ive been told i was very lucky not to have a big accident has i was riding the bike when they went!!!! if your bearings have gone what have you replaced them with and are they standing up to the job? i wouldnt like top think i was going to have this done every 5000 miles!!! and also be scared of riding the damn thing!!

Mines '55 reg Ian, so not much older than yours, I would guess I've covered about 5000 miles on mine too. I think MikeF4UK's advice is well worth paying attention to, if the bearing is very hot after a run its probably on the way out. I plan to change the bearings in mine at the end of every season from now on.

For riders in the UK the bearings can be obtained from:

BSL Wolverhampton
Headway Road
Wolverhampton
Tel : 01902 395959

Fax : 01902 395939

Rear hub replacement bearing ref:

3810RS bearing 1 off
HK5520 bearing 1 off
MBR55X63X5A seal 2 off



This information was provided to me by Mike (our resident R1 owner :wtf:) BTW.

wow that is something that worries me now that I am upon miles on my 06 F4. I really would like to order a set maybe one of the sponsors (not emoto) will read this and put together a package deal on the set front and rear and make it barney style to order a set. that would be great ;) does anyone know a website or a vendor in the US that can get us these bearings and seals?

Mine went last summer on an 8000mile 2002 750. Took the hub with it aswell..... replaced with a magnesium hub as it was half the price of the standard part....

Mine collapsed pulling it out of the garage, but i didnt realise and rode it round the block wondering why the rear was wobbly.... !!!!

yes john, but they shouldnt bloody go at 5000ish miles!!!! were talking a bout a top of the range marque bike here, i cant see japanese bikes doing this!! what about the single sided dukes do they have problems? ive had quite a few bikes and never had wheel bearings go , never mind collapse, if i had not heeded the warning sign( anotchy click) and pulled over to investigate then i might not be even typing this, imo its just not bloody good enough

I'd been giving my bike a real pasting, serious stuff and then I stopped at my brothers and when I set off again the back wheel was all over the place. I stopped to find aluminium shards all over the rear rim. Rightly or wrongly I rode home (about 12 miles) at no more than 40 mph. when I stripped the rear end the hub was totally shot.

then you were very lucky mate indeed , my wife was following me on r6 and said the back wheel was all over the shop, id only stopped to l;ook at it 500 yards earlier and yes there was shards of ally everywhere, so i sent her back home to get car n trailer, it started when i felt what was like when you hit a small stone and bike jinks sideways but i knew i hadnt hit one so rode on about a mile and it did it again so i stopped in a filling station put bike on stand and wiggled back wheel and it seemed fine i inspected chain and couldnt see anything wrong so set off again , got about 500 yds and it did it again but worse so i stopped and noticed the slivers of oil that wernt there earlier said to dawn (wife) were going home i dont like this which is when she followed me and saw wheel wobbling !!!!!! i very obviously felt this and pulled over immediatley, my speed never got above 25mph , had i been going quick i might not have noticed the jinking feeling . the bearings had gone all at once , a sickening thought
