Can anybody give me the part numbers for original or equivalent front wheel bearings and seals?

Mines a Non ABS 2002 Euro model in case it makes a difference.

Woody,

According to Rabbit's link site the seal part number is spot on :shock:
You are either a memory master or you need to get out more :wink:

Is 60/22LU a standard part number for an equivalent? because the Yamaha part number has the same format as the seal.

Anybody got any experiences of needle vs. ball bearings or should I just stick to balls (like I normally post).

Thanks for the info guys.

The front bearing number an aftermarket number ie. SKF which would be better than OEM stuff.

As for the seal number I have just ordered some for spares.

One set of SKF bearings (small, aren't they), one set of seals on order and one Yamaha oil filter; 30 quid (50 Euros) all in. Not at all bad.

Apparently, when you but an original part, Yahama charge 15 Euros more (per item) for the identical bearing; but an original oil filter is the same price as a pattern part. Go figure! :roll:

Thanks for all the info everybody.

When you go to your local bearing stockist, ask for these seals as well as they will be able to supply them easily / cheaply.

2 off 28 x 44 x 7 R23 ( double lip rubber covered ). firstly saves another trip to Yamaha and gets it all done in one shop.

Wheel Bearings

You should always use Ball barings for your front wheel as they are designed to withstand the linear and side thrust loads applied by the front wheel as it steers and corners while the bike is both leaning and handle bar turn steering.
My personel preference is the SKF or any Swedish brands as the Toyo and most japanese only case hardened their bearings. SKF through harden their bearings.

As a bearing specialist I have to stick my nose in, these bearings are a deep groove radial ball bearing and are solely designed for radial load, they take tiny amounts of linear / side load (and I mean tiny). and axial load is really the only load on these bearings. steering and cornering etc make no difference on a bike cause its leaning. extra axial load is only a cornering issue on a car, which has taper roller bearings or wide (double row ) angular contact ball bearings, both of which take the required axial load / side thrust.
Whilst I agree that SKF is amongst the best there is, don't rule out ANY western manufacturers. as spec / load / speed / quality is so similar its not worth mentioning, NSK, ***, NTN, are all makes i'd happily fit to mine and the last few times i've tried SKF on fronts, they have not been in stock. keep well away from anything with china written on it or anything with no markings at all apart from the reference.. and always fit 2RS type ( double rubber shields ) as they are much better at maintaing bearing integrity than the ZZ type ( double metal shields ) which can let dust in and grease out the small gap between the inner race and shield inside diameter.
GOOD QUALITY 2RS TYPE in the makes mentioned and its as good as it gets.

Good site with lots of bearing kits BUT the content of the kit is a make i personally would not fit, KML is a make that as a bearing specialist is a non preferred make here in th UK, but ya pays ya money and takes ya chance. but i would not recommend a mate fitting them. there not dangerous or anything like that i just want better ,and there is a lot better than that.
These bearings are your life and as a cheap part that you dont have to skimp on, why wouldn't you want the cream. ??
Always ask what MAKE are the bearings.....

Good info waldy.

Having had a set of front bearings break up on my bike, with even the good quality bearings only costing a few quid, seems like false economy to me to go for anything less.

Thing is Marshman, as you say, they obviously work hard anyway being a heavy and powerfull bike and some (like you) dont exactly hang about, why would you save yourself £10 (a set) or less on a product that takes 40% less load and from a manufacturer with a £50 budget for research and development, SKF spend millions just on the greases they use. point made. now i'll shut up.

Are you talking about just their wheel bearings or the wheel and steering head bearings too? All Balls was recommended by several folks on the other forum.

I haven't looked at the other kits but suspect they will be similar. what is important for you to check is NOT where the kits come from but what MAKE the bearings are inside their kits. if not the makes i've mentioned then I would not fit these (chinese) makes of bearings on a moped let alone our FJR's.
Any local bearing stockist can supply everything you need including seals, just give them samples or I can give you the bearing numbers and seal references if required. If you are doing head bearings ( which I dont know of yet ) I really recommend you fit original Yamaha Bearings here, as they will at least be good quality as an oem part ( certainly NOT chinese ) please be carefull here....
