- Hope Pro 2 bearings – same as bulb?
No not for the rear – Pro II rear are : 6802 2rs x2, 6903 2rs x2, 6902 2rs x1
Pro II front are: 2x 6804 2rs so that kit should be OK?
Try these for the rear – if you need proII?Posted 7 years agohonourablegeorgeMember
There’s a cheapo kit that does the two main bearings in the Pro 2 rear too, think it’s the “Fatso” kit on CRC below, can’t remember which one I used – check the numbers.Posted 7 years ago
+1 Honour – but even cheaper:
I get mine from Ukbikestore – share the wealth and they are very prompt and usually have all the hope spares in stock 🙂Posted 7 years ago
I have the exact same quality of bearings but with my custom weather proofing. So they will not rust internally over time, hope’s bearings are good quality but they only run a 25% grease fill and it’s only a rotational grease.
So that leaves, let me get my calculator out, oh yes 75% air to protect the bearings internals from moisture/rusting.

budgie rider67 the stainless will rotate the same as the chromium, the only difference is that the stainless will not rust.
However if you weather proof the bearings then they will be fine anyway, stainless isn’t as tough as chromium so wares out quicker, also the bearings will still get crap into them, if enough builds up the bearing will still seize.
I prefer to run top end bearings and weather proof them, stainless/ ceramic, I haven’t seen a better alternative yet to be honest.Posted 7 years ago
