I guess we should ask the Tire eater on here how long his bearings last for comparisson
And it does suction it’s way in there when spinning.Thanks for posting this question, I was just wondering about this the other day while reading another thread about bearings. However, I will make sure to use synthetic gear lube when I pump it in around my front axle, don't want it to loose its viscosity while it's working its way into the bearings.
Thank you for the info.Some folks have over 300k miles without changing. I have 137k, last tire change still good, still have no noise, wheel rotates smoothly.
Or in other words, change when they start making noise - rough rotation by hand. There is no guarantee that you won't ding a new one installing, and you just caused yourself a problem when you didn't have one before. Bearing will let you know that it's having an issue well before it strands you.
Do you have centramatics? They make noise.There should be no gap between the spacer and the bearing. The spacer sits into the dust seal, so you should not even be able to see it. You line up the groove on the axle with the edge of the left front fork and tighten the axle, That should have drawn everything together.
Another thing to check is the space between the calipers and the rotors.

The 0.28 measurement should read .028
Tire noise?No centermatics, 2 oz of Dyna Beads, I'm refering to the INNER SPACER, not the outer spacers, everything is set by the book, whirring is slightly less as opposed to using All Balls bearings..
Dunno?? I'll ride till it blows up, maybe gremlins??
I spun the wheel while the bike was on the lift, didn't hear any drag?? A mystery I'll tell ya??
