GL1800 Front wheel bearing sizes

Postby J.Wilson » Wed Aug 12, 2015 3:03 pm



After scouring the forums and google I cant seem to find out the sizes of the wheel bearings for the front wheel. Does anyone here happen to know? Im needing to replace the ones on my 2006 as I have some play in it, but I would prefer to just go to a local auto parts store with the sizes I need and pick them up as opposed to order them online and have to wait 1 or 2 weeks on them (tedious I know, but I'm inpatient). This isnt intended to start a debate on which bearings are better so I apologize in advance if thats what it turns into.

I just replaced the front bearings on my 1500 and the price was $14 for the all balls kit with seals. 3 day shipping time. I doubt you're going to find seals at a local parts place, either. Anyway, best I can find is this post http://gl1800riders.com/forums/showthread.php?145293-Front-Wheel-Bearings&p=1615084&viewfull=1#post1615084 says the number is 6004LU for the 1800. Google that and see what applications it's used for.

If you go for the All Balls kit, the # is 25-1381 for your bike. I ordered mine from emsglobal's ebay site.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/FRONT-WHEEL-BEARING-KIT-HONDA-GOLDWING-1800-GOLD-WING-GL1800-2001-2002-2003-2004-/331413010891?hash=item4d29c139cb&vxp=mtr shows only up to 2004 model year but it's the same kit number for all years of 1800s

I ordered them thursday with 2 day shipping and they came in today. Its suppose to rain all week here so I guess now is as good of time as any to go ahead and replace them. Hopefully all will go smoothly. Thanks for your help again.
