the new 9276B Non ABS bearing has metal grease seals on both sides AND only the outer race turns, the seals stay stationary, which is NOT how a bearing should work

I'd not be putting one in my bike   :crook:





This more to my liking

note what they say it replaces   :SM:

When did HD start with the 25mm axles? Would it had been with the 2007's?

I see so many wheels with bad 25mm bearings.  Almost never any 1" bearings failing.

I read about it all the time. So, why did they switch in the first place and why don't they go back to 1"? Is it something to do with ABS?

My guess is the 25mm is a standard bearing, where the 1" was not, not that it ever seemed to make a difference to Harley!
I am an adult?? When did that happen, and how do I make it stop?!

Around 20-25K in my experience you had better start looking pretty closely at them

Pressure washer from an inexperienced detail guy knocked them out in my Deuce at about 6K miles

I scrutinize them closely at every tire change

Thanks for ALL the responses. I've come to expect over the years on HTT.

I have 35,000 miles on the Ultra, getting new tires this month, I will definitely have them check the bearings and maybe just have new ones put in for peace of mind.
The weird thing is, with the '01 RoadKing, I can't remember ever changing bearings in over 100,000 miles, and I make sure they are checked every tire change.
The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule.

Ordered a Pit Posse bearing puller/installer tool from Amazon. Comes with hardware enough for 3 HD bearing sizes as advertised. I received Saturday. I pulled the wheels off 2010 Ultra yesterday and removed bearings. The remaining 3 intact bearing units are garbage. There was going to be more problems soon!
