    Ok folks after I had the rear wheel bearings replaced and put the wheel back on I decided to check the front. Well I dropped the front wheel out and low and behold. When I turn the bearings with my fingers pushing down on the inner race I could feel a little roughness. Very slight but there. Not smooth like it should be. This again is with 15000 miles. I just replaced the front tire mid summer so it would have been another 8000 or so miles before I changed the front again. I don't think they would have made it without failing. If you have a Dyna in the 2010 era would would check the bearings very closely. To save money on a bearing that if failed at say 60 + MPH could kill you is just wrong. MOCO bad move. Make no misstake I love my Harley and would never ride anything else, but darn.
