    Removal of the Bearings is quite straightforward :

    1. Remove wheel and lie it down on blocks of wood to protect the Brake discs from damage.
    2. Remove the Bearing seals, and the retaining circlip.
    3. Using a suitable pin punch, drive the Bearings out from the opposite side, and collect the central sleeve.

    Fitting the new Bearings, according to the Service Manual, requires Triumph Service Tools.

    You could probably make your own easily enough. (  :015: ).

    The tools are a draw bar ( Long bolt ! ) with a "Support Tool" on one side of the wheel,
    and an "Insertion Tool" of the correct diameter for the Bearing,
    that pulls the Bearing into the hub as the bolt is tightened.

    Bearing Insertion Tool : T3880553 ( Large Face to Bearing )  Approx. 24.50
    Bearing Support Tool : 3880070 - T0301 ( Large Face to Wheel ) Approx. 17.50

    You are also recommended to fit a new Circlip ( T3500402 Approx. 5.50 ), and new Seals.

    Even with the cost of these tools, added to the new Bearings and Seals and Circlip,
    it still works out at less than half the 200 quoted. !

    When fitting the new Bearings, they should be installed with the Marked or Shielded side facing outwards.

    Lubricate the "Knife Edge" of the Seals with Grease to NLGI 2 specification.

    Cheers  :821:

    You can get the circlip on e-bay for 1.28 that was the hardest bit, getting the clip out, I broke a pair of circlip pliers trying.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Circlip-47mm-Internal/123312540072?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

    To get the first bearing out you can put a large flat head screwdriver in from the opposite side and jam it into the inside hole of the bearing with another screwdriver from the oposite side. I needed to pack between the drivers with a slip of metal as well to get them to grip the inner race, then drift it out.

    Did you see my earlier post?

    That's extortionate! I paid 130 when I had mine done in Chelmsford. They were changing the front tyre anyway so did the bearing too.

    A bit of both Earthman, the pliers were a bit mickey mouse, but the circlip is indusrtial strenght  :008: I think it was stuck in the groove as well, the new one was challenging to get in as well...

    I have a set of drifts and centering bush to refit the bearings if you wish to borrow them. Just need to pay postage both ways if you need them. At the ulster grand prix at the minute but will be back late sunday. You could ring me on 01388814782 or pm me

    When I had new tyres fitted, and the wheels re powder coated, my local tyre supplier, I can supply the company name if required, based in the West Midlands, charged me 5.00 to remove and refit the bearings and seals...new bearings and seals supplied by myself....powdercoated wheels, 110.....new tyres, PR4 GT's...about 250..took the bike across Europe, 2 up with luggage, about 4500 miles and worn down by 1mm, checked by the tyre supplier.
