Well after only putting 400 miles of easy riding on it after i bought it started to get a clunkin noise from the rear. Took me awhile to figure it out first i checked the chain, lubed that, then both brake systems in the rear that was fine, thought maybe it was the reverse plate or gears makin noise. Luckly Eric new exactly what is was with just a description of the noise! Wow the bearing was pretty bad but the other 2 where ok is that normal? I am trying to get special bearings made for it from a company locally(if they turn out anything special i will post them up.), but i am having trouble finding the "o" ring.(any common places like napa or autozone have something like that?) Thanks alot j-rex for helping me over the phone getting the bearings out, And Eric for telling me what the problem was before i really screwed something up!

Nice info on the bearings. Anybody have experience with these? Longivity? If good long life, maybe we should add these to the parts list. My $.02 worth.
