Lamont, is that a front or rear wheel bearing? I had one come apart like that on a 01 502 with 7,000 miles. I don't know what brand the factory uses but I put Timkins in and have not had a problem since. I don't remember the brand that was in the bike, but it was a name that I had not seen before. Bill

You have about 3 ways to get the rear inner races out . #1 , weld a large washer to it inner race and press or pound it out , # 2 welds a few spots around the inside to press or pound it out or #3, grind it almost thru with a dremmel tool or the likes and break it out . Let us know how you finally got it out .

What made them go bad so quickly , too tight on the axle torque?

Gentlemen,
Thank you Lamont for the pics.Good thing you found it when you did. Noises do mean something, huh?
This is why I insist on having my wheel bearings repacked everytime I have a tire changed, wether is be front or back. The front berings are used on Harleys ( I believe), which is usually sees 300lbs MAX on them not 600-700lbs we have.

There is also a #4 way to get them out. I got mine out with a race puller.
It was so hard to do - it almost broke my neck. Not very suggestable way.
But if I remember right, my Boss pal Andy told me he got his out by
heating up the whole hub, and then spraying the race with "Ice Spray".

Don't think there is an easy way. I cut slots in the race and then welded a washer to the race (2" OD washer) and then knocked them out. Tuff job. :?
