Pro2 freehub service
The only tools I think are worth while are the bearing drifts but you can make do without. With reseating I use a bit of string to tie around the pawls while you get them located enough to push the freehub back. Of you’re takin the freehub off then have a clean and inspection of the hub bearings too. Did you watch the hope vid with the guy who has a hub on its own?Posted 5 years agoorangeboyMember
Pro 2 paws will stay in on there own unlike the older bulb and xc.
The tool is just for seating the black seal into the the hub shell , you just need to use anything to push the seal home
It Normaly clicks into place.
If you don’t seat the seal the hub body drags a lotPosted 5 years agomick_rSubscriber
Have you pulled the freehub off yet to look inside? After just 9 months use I was rather surprised to find mine totally shot – needle bearing corroded and all the pawl springs broken. You might find yours needs more than a new bearing.
Pop it in a jiffybag back to Hope with a covering letter and their return form and a rebuilt (think I actually got a whole new freehub) one will usually reappear a few days later 🙂
Just needed a good tap with a piece of tube to get it to click the seat / “seal” back in place.
Seems like backwards progress – we’ve got a 17 year old Hope XC hub that has its original pawls, springs and needed just one set of freehub bearings…Posted 5 years ago
mick_r, no not had a look yet wanted to know what bits I need before taking a look. The wheels have hardly been used so was just hoping to grease/oil the springs etc to start with and see how that goes.
Of course it might be worse than that but we’ll see….
What piece of tubing did you use to seat the seal back in place? Would rather try that than than chase in the seal.Posted 5 years ago
Would a piece of sink waste pipe fit over the freehub?Blazin-saddlesMember
You don’t need tools unless you’re changing the bearings.
The seal will push back in with a flat edged blunt anything, spoon handle will do etc. the pawls and springs will hold in place on the body, use a dab of grease to hold them if need be and as you line up the free hub, rotate the body backwards as you press it on and you don’t need bits of string or anything else to hold the pawls in.Posted 5 years agofoxyriderMember
