I did not do this-but could not find anything cheap-If I had changed them I would have used this method from the "how to" section

If you feel the bearings went south then Robert has lead you to the perfect post to replace them, these are no longer available from the dealer... If mine go south I will repair them using this guys methods...Good on you Robert.. Spin them and listen good, any noises is probably not good.. Looseness even worse..

I have read that people have successfully used Gates T42015 Idler pulleys on their GL1100, but I can't confirm that directly. I don't know if modification is required to get them to fit. Who wants to be the guinea pig for the rest of us?

When I debated doing the modification that was the pulley. I chose not to just because I was lazy:)
