Might need new wheel bearings!

Figured out what the funny vibration was and occasional crunch/grining noise

50% of the balls were dust. Literally. Can't complain, it was a 30 minuite fix. And accutally I'm kinda proud. This is the first worn out part Miss Reliable has had. Excluding chains/sprokets and tires of coarse. For those wondering this wheel bearing was pronouced dead at 67711 miles.

Yeah, just pack some BB's in there.

That was a good set of bearings. Mine turned to dust at 52000 Kms.

I can tell you that on a Kawasaki if you put the internal spacer on the rear in backwards it does not take long to kill a bearing on the drive side.

They are all sealed and they are all ball bearings.

The scary part is I check the bearings every time I put a new tire on. They felt fine 4k miles ago. Of coarse I changed the other bearing and the sproket hub bearing as well. Figure they can't be far behind.

The quesion I have now is: How many miles are on that spare F4 wheel that is on the front of my bike. Hmmmmmmm. I guess it is cheap insurance to change those too.
