Front Wheel Bearing Spacer

Post by Garsmo »

Hello all. In trying to replace my front wheel bearings, I discovered that a previous owner has jacked up the spacer/collar in the hub between the bearings. (#6 here: ... ront-wheel) They are no longer available and I can't find a used one on eBay. Can someone possibly measure one and give me the dimensions so I can try to come up with a replacement. Also, I ran into a few from 80's Magnas on eBay. What is the chance that they may be a replacement, if the flange thing is removed from them? Thanks in advance for any info.

"Bike and Dennis" has owned his 1200 since new, and he takes it apart every fall for a PM, almost 300,000 miles on it and still like new.

he can probably give you an answer.

he is the 3rd post down in this thread. ... earch.html
