Yes, I know there have been reams written about wheel bearings, but the bad news is, mine have finally taken a dump at 9,800 miles.

I was away for a few days last week riding around Snowdonia and Anglesey in the rain. On the ride home, I notice the dreaded rusty goo coming from the left side, (disc), wheel bearing.

Anyway, I called Oxford Harley Davidson, and they said, "no problem, bring it in, it's covered by your warranty".

Yes, I'll lose a couple of days riding while it's repaired, but I think Oxford HD have a good attitude to their customers.

Just a thought; maybe the left side go first due to water ingress and the bike leaning to the left when on it's side stand.......?

Have you got a FS tensioner on your bike?
