Wheel Bearings
« on: November 18, 2018, 02:36:45 PM »
I'm taking my TTSE off the road over the winter, end of November until maybe March  :084:....during that time I will get the main stand, drive arm and wheels re powder coated, my question is, when the wheels are stripped, i.e tyres off the rims, and bearings are out is it worth, as a matter of course.

1, replacing the wheel bearings, and seals, the bike has done 22500
2, replace the battery's in the TPMS...I know, you should buy new TPMS, but the battery's are replaceable with a little work.
3, replace seals in the drive shaft.

I have never had any problems, just preventative measures, the bike is a 2013 (63) reg.

IF I change the batteries in the TPMS, I'm assuming the units will have to be re learnt to the bike !!!!, if so do I need a special tool, or is done through the Dearlertool. 

Thanks in advance.

I don't think it would be necessary to reprogram the TPMS if you reinstall them in the same wheels they were in before.  New batteries shouldn't change the programming since they are entered by the sensors' serial numbers into the Trophy's computer according to whether they are in the front or rear wheel.  If I was doing all this I would just change wheel bearings because it would already be at a point of it being just as easy as replacing the existing ones and may eliminate taking it down again.  Kind of like the old "if you have to replace a clutch throwout bearing you may as well replace the pressure plate and disc at the same time to avoid tearing it down completely later and doing it".

Thanks for the reply trophied, You wouldn't know the bearing and seal size would you, I would like to try and source them from an independent supplier, assuming I can get them cheaper.

The World of Triumph Web Site is a very useful resource as there are exploded drawings,
and information on various parts used on the Trophy.

Click here : World Of Triumph / Trophy SE/ Front Wheel.

Front Bearings ( Item 4 ) shown as being 20 x 47 x 14, and the Oil Seals ( Item 2 ) as DC 28 x 47 x 7.

Cheers  :821:

If it's all apart it shouldn't be a problem for a bearing supplier to cross reference whatever numbers are on them for an exact match or even the same manufacturers item, or use coconuts World of Triumph info to see if they have an exact match.  A real life bearing supply company has great info at their disposal for just that purpose.

Taking the wheels out isn't that much work so at 54.000 km's I leave the bearings until they show signs of wearing. That mostly happens while renewing tires and/or balancing the wheels.

My bike is the same age but needed new front wheel bearings at 28000miles.

Bearings aren’t too expensive, probably worth doing while the wheels are off. But if you choose to delay it, it’s still an easy job in future to remove the front wheel and replace them.

Evening all.
Following on from my earlier post, and the help from Coconut, I have ordered 2 x Bearings and 2 x Oil Seals off Ebay, total price £9.82..free postage.

I will now get the wheels refurbished over the winter  :190:, bring on the spring.
