I recognize those. Thanks for posting those up. Never had the chance to get around to doing that. Which reminds me I have to get in to do my front bearings soon.

How much for 2 bearings and 2 seals for the front?

I got the Allballs bearing kit for the rear. It was less than half the cost of oem.

They don't make a kit for the front, so I was thinking of heading down to LA bearings to see if they could match the fronts.

I need 2 front sets and 1 rear set.

Mike:
Try Midpoint bearing in Ontario
1155 W. Brooks Street
Suite 100
Ontario, CA 91762
(909) 391-1466
www.midpointbearing.com
Just South of the intersection of Holt and Mountain avenues

Their prices are always very competitive, and if they don't have a bearing in stock on average it takes only a day to get them.

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Yea, his hands are way to clean, I dont think he got enough in there. I usually end up with my hands totally covered with goo before I'm convinced I got enought in there, LOL

CB900F2, just Use standard wheel bearing grease available at any autoparts store

Thanks Rob.

That's actually HBR's hands. Not sure about type of grease.

The point is that the factory does not pack the bearings properly.
It's worth a look during the offseason (?).

That would be Maxima WaterProof grease. It's a premium lithium complex NLGI #2 grade grease with a tackifier so it stays where it belongs. It's good stuff.

So uhh whats the earliest anyone's heard of the rear bearings going bad? Less than 10,000 on the original bearings(yes I know I need to ride more) and the brake side rear bearing was toast. The grease was dried up and the dust seal had rust in it. Heading out to line the chain up now after installing an all balls kit.

It seems to be a roll of the dice on whether or not the OEM bearings will have a sufficient amount of grease in them. When we popped the seals off of Darkace's brand new Honda OEM bearings to check, some were just barely addiquite while others had only one small dab of grease on just one side of the bearing...NOT GOOD!
I got into the habit of always checking all lubrication points on any new bike when I was a kid and am happy to say I have never had a bearing failure in over 35 years of riding and racing. Sokali's All-Balls kit wasn't to bad, but we repacked them anyways for good measure. Do a search and you will find a thread on how to get the covers off without damaging them. Best of luck to you.
