Just read a disturbing article in a motorcycle magazine. In short, the article claims the wheel bearings for 09 and later touring bikes are subject to early failure. The bearings are outsourced to a South Korean firm. The bearings have an embeded code to work with ABS and therefore cannot be changed out for third party bearings, hence, the problem has no fix. I have an 09 Ultra with 25K and have not noticed this. The article claims failure around 18K or less. Does anyone have any info to back up or shoot down this article? I have no reason to doubt the sincerity of the author or his loyalty to The HD brand.
