Nice walk-through. This would be a great time to moly-up the final drive before reassembly, too.

Thank you.

Yep, that's the plan.

Great video, I esspecially liked the whoops! lol
Thanks.

Yeah, it'd be a good idea to wire the swing arm to the frame so that doesn't happen. I'll make note of that in the video.

Great video Roach. Thanks for showing us what to expect.

I think your actual bearing packing technique could use some improvement though. :)

I tried to write up the technique I have used for 40 years, but it was too wordy and not clear enough for anyone not familiar with the procedure.

I found this 20 second clip on Youtube that demonstates the technique I was taught as a teenager by my father, a heavy duty mechanic.

This is the quickest, simplest and most efficient way of packing a bearing that I know off, and does not require any special tools.

Yup! That's how I do it. It ensures the grease is fully embedded throughout the entire inside of the bearing.

Good Luck!

Hey thanks!

I agree. I had been told to put grease on my plam and push the bearing into it, but that looks a lot more effiecent.

I did do a little better job packing it in after the camera was off. It's hard to record some things properly because I need to press the button on the camera after I'm done and I don't want to do that with a handfull of grease. :)
