Sidecar Wheel Bearing Replacement

Post by deltamark » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:25 am

Am a total newb to wheel bearings and would like to replace the bearings on a 2002 Tourist sidecar-only that I recently purchased. I ordered the sealed wheel bearings. Haven't been able to find any tutorials or documents that show how to do this. Any links or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you are going to replace the stock tapered bearings with sealed bearings, you need more than just the bearings to do this.

Terry Crawford sells a kit to do this.

Thanks Albuquralque. I confirmed that I am getting the entire sealed bearing kit. Not sure how different the install will be. Hopefully I can figure it out, but if you know of any documentation for installing the sealed bearing kit, please send my way.

Actually, the sidecar frame has already been attached to a 2014 Honda CB1100. Need to update my signature.

Good luck on your side car install

A little chubby at 560#, but that 88 hp ought haul that tub along smartly!

:wink: Pics when ready, please.

Try this search method > site:sovietsteeds.com wheel bearings (note the "space" between .com and wheel). This technique works on just about any website that allows search (which is most of them).

Thanks for the search tips, LMO and Lokiboy. I wasn't aware of these techniques. Very Cool!

Here's my rig so far without the tub. Will put that on once I replace the sidecar tire and wheel bearings.
