Thread: Buell Wheels Question

  1. #1
    So I was having my rear tire replaced and the mechanics told me that my bearings have gone out too. They told me that I have to get a completely new wheel since the bearings are press fit into the wheel. This sounds way fishy to me and I wanted to know if this was really true.

    No you dont need a whole new wheel.

    Don't I only need the bearings for the wheel?

    I bought a set from vurban-industries on ebay. He seemed to be a good guy and a decent price. He even did the research to make sure I was buying the right part first.

    Hope that helps.

    agreed, if they are trying to con you on that or are simply too dumb then do not trust them to work on it.

    Moral of the story, trust no one, do the work your self.

    Yeah,if it sounds fishy it most likely is,just replace the bearings and you should be fine.
