    Rear Wheel Bearing.

    My 2014 TTSE only has 11,500 miles (bought new) and last week the Mot guy put an "advisory" as play on rear bearing. :187:

    Gripping top & bottom of the tyre with a careful wiggle I measure side play as 0.2 mm on the DTI, there is a noticeable but very minute clunck of the bearing when warm - but no clunk when cold though.

    Nothing noticed when gripping front & back of the tyre with slight wiggle.

    Any other owners have similar or do you think my MoT guy is being finicky?

    I've just checked with Fowlers helpful site and see we have a Taper Roller Bearing in there - so there may be scope to just nick it up a bit. :017:

    I have experience in the manufacture of bevel gear drive assemblies, though for much larger applications than motorcycles. I suspect any "play" at the rim will not be an easy fix and more likely an early warning of bearing failure. Sorry if that isn't the answer you wanted and it is given without personal experience of the Trophy bevel box.

    As I understand it, the play is normal. I have this too, and it hasn't got any worse in the three years / 15000 miles since I first noticed it. I recall another post on here a while ago where this was discussed. As far as I know the bearing isn't adjustable.

    Wasn't this issue mentioned on here some time ago? Didn't the owner inform the MOT guy that a tiny amount of play were normal after having that confirmed from Triumph HQ?

    My 2012 TTSE also have a bit of a "play", I think it is important before have the measure to separate the brake pads rear to allow to see all the "play" of the bearing, I started to observe it recently because before I checked it from 3-9 and not at 6-12, has a "play" and makes a "clonck" noise. The dealer tells me they have had to change a couple of conical groups but before it starts to lose oil and has a very big "play".

    Thanks to all for the input, I removed the wheel today and checked out the set-up.

    Looks like the hub is on a very tight spline so a 3 or 4 leg puller would be needed to get to the bearing, which I don't have.

    So, taking into account that this play appears to be normal - I'll put it all back and monitor it as time goes by, 11,500 miles on the clock at present.

    Cheer's guys. :002:

     Did you notice anything else that helps keep that whole hub assembly in place Steve? A circlip at least maybe??

    If it's just a 'press fit' by the factory and you did manage to get it apart by using a puller, I bet that you'd have a hard time refitting it,....and could you trust it to stay put??
