- Hope xc rear hub bearings – help!
If the new bearing didn’t go in straight that would explain why it was a tight fit and why the axle doesn’t spin smoothly. If the bearing was damaged when you drifted it in that would also result in your axle not spinning freely. Might be worth knocking them out and trying again. What are your using to put the bearings in?Posted 4 years agoaustinburnerMember
Stripped the hub down ready for rebuild with new bearings. Tapped in the hub drive side bearing, put the axle in & tapped home the non drive side bearing. At this stage, the axle is really difficult to turn & the bearings feel really notchy.Posted 4 years ago
Only things I have noticed are, the axle took some bashing to get out on strip down & the new bearings were a pretty tight fit when putting in. Believe they are tapped fully home & seated properly.
