Front Wheel Bearings - Which Are Best?
Just wanted to see what the current thought of the group was on front wheel bearings. As I have a new wheel coming to me, it seemed to me to be a good time to pre-emptively replace the bearings. What is the best choice for longest lasting/most durable wheel bearings? I'm willing to pay more to get better quality, and because I ride my 919 daily on some really crappy roads (note that other DFW riders have been eating entire wheels of late) I can certainly appreciate dependable wheel bearings.
I also have access to several industrial bearing houses in my general vicinity if they are a common bearing number and Timken, SKF, whoever, would be a better choice than some kit.
