decided to fix rear end leaking. yay!

ever since i got my bike it splashed oily grease all over my rear rim. at first i thought it may be extra grease but both time ive taken my rear end off there was oil in that axel shaft. i decided to buy both oil seals and the big o ring. well i took it off and did the big o ring and oil seal but i didnt have the equipment to do the smaller so i decided id give them it and have them swap it for me. they confirmed what i aready thought. i needed that small bearing in there also. and thats why it was leaking in the first place. its not a big deal but i HATE always having to wait for parts. i with bikes were like cars. if you need it you have it fast.

but hey, this should knock ouyt one of my bikes major problems! so now if he behaves maybe ill get to spend some money customizing her more. new windsheild since mine is messed up from a spill, air horn. things of that nature.

ive read a bunch on here and never heard of anyone replacing that bearing. has anyone?
