Wheel Bearing - looks for reliable ones
« on: March 09, 2017, 01:47:59 PM »
Hi,
I have Z8 model 2014, I'm replacing the Wheel bearing every 500 Km,
I always use the genuine CF Moto bearings,
Can you please recommend me on an alternative bearings that will last longer?

Is someone have a procedure / movie on how to replace them?
Thanks,
Dan

The manual shows how to replace them and it's pretty easy but..I wonder why you are going through bearings so quickly. Do you have wheel spacers or wheels with the wrong offsets maybe? Is it front and back or more one then the other? I have 900 miles or 1448 Km on mine and the wheel bearings are still like new...and I use 1.5" spacers with the stock wheels.

Hi,
I don't have wheel spacers or wheels (stock) with the wrong offsets, it's quiet common phenomena in all of the CF Moto in where I leave. I believe it's the steak mud and the hard sand that makes the bearings work harder (it's my assumption), we also try to avoid cleaning with high pressure water jet.
I heard that Toyota bearing can be a substitute option, I asked for the replacement procedure just to understand if the workshop is doing it well, each bearing replacement is cost ~ $170,
Thanks for your answer,
Dan

Most of these are the same... that is remover the knuckle, remove the retainer clip, press or tap bearing out, clean up, install new bearing and clip, reinstall knuckle. Knuckle removal does entail removing the axle nut which holds a pretty high torque.

The bearing are std size so better one's are available, I think the bearing size is 30x55x32 but you will need to check there's also a tool available that allows greasing of the hub bearings, saying that I'm not 100% sure they fit the z8

If Davidpaul is correct on the bearing size, he's right, you can get them several places.  If your're buying CFMoto parts, keep in mind this is a China company and they are not exactly known for producing the highest quality.

Here's one that sells a double sealed bearing.  This one's in the states, but you should be able to find them in other countries.

Let us know if those bearings fit please!  I would like to get a set in and keep them on hand as I am sure I will go through them reasonably fast

Wow...even for the cheap OE bearing that's pretty fast. Are you sure it isn't knuckle bushings? My lowers already went..byby but I also have 1.5" spacers so I wasn't too surprised.

Yep, I'm sure.  Definite wheel bearing.  All my aarm and knuckles are tight.  I have 29s now,  probably contributed.  I don't mind putting better ones in.  I'm still under warranty but it's pretty useless to bring it to the dealer for the easy stuff like thermo switch and bearings. I'd rather not drive and hour each way,  twice then be without the machine for 2 weeks.

Going from memory alone i think like 1 3/8"

I could be way off though
