Hi there - new to the site
just wondering,, i have an 05 500 foreman with 2300 kms
and just got it back from the dealer.
had to have the front wheel bearings replaced.
they were totally shot !!
yeah i just jacked it up doing a routine inspection
and grabbed the wheel and shook it.
thought it was gonna come off in my hand LOL
dealer aired in the parts and had it done in 24 hrs.
no charge for anything
I keep hearing about all these bearing problems. My Foreman is pushin' 3 yrs. old & we ride a lot in sandy water which is probebly the worst thing for them & mine are still as good as new. I may have bad luck with other things, but bearings so far have been good to me.
I'm in the process of buying an 07' Foreman, Noticed it was a bit squirly at high speeds, found the bearings to be bad. I've done this on an older Fourtrax, but wanted to know if anybody had advise on where to buy the bearings. I've found some on Ebay, full kit (both sides) for $50 plus shipping. I've heard Honda is not any better than cheap ones. Any other advise?
IVE GOT A 05 AND MY RIGHT FRONT THIS WILL BE THE SECOND TIME AROUND ON IT AND FIRST TIME ON LEFT FRONT WHEEL I JUST THOGHT IT WAS BECAUSE OF BIG TIRES BUT SOMEBODY TOLD ME THE ORIGINALS AINT THAT GOOD HONDA SHOP HAS A AFTERMARKET SET BOTH FRONT FOR 59.00
Just lost my on both sides and I have mud light tires just wondering if the tires was the problem. And plan on doing them myself havent been to the dealership yet to price them anyone have an ideal on what the price should be and what excatly do i need? 2 bearings and 2 seals for each side.
Your dealer replaced bearings for you no charge? Down here bearings are like brake pads and oil. That's routine maintenance, they'd laugh me out of the shop if I asked for new bearings lol. I run 29.5s on mine for a little over a year. I just now need to replace mine
If you buy "AllBalls" bearings they are a sealed bearing and will last you alot longer
Right front been replaced twice with Allballs bearings and they dont last. Left front is still oem with 7800 miles on it. If you buy the aftermarket ones they come with the seals, if you buy oem you have to buy the seals seperate.
i have replaced mine twice (its 2005) but i have 28inch tires on it and the bike has 3800 miles on it. and thats hard riding so wheel bearings are bound to go out not that big of a deal easy to replace
