    Just wondering if anyone has seen rear fork bearings like this before?
    41,000 miles on the bike.

    Also, any comments on if the pulley should be replaced or not? The belt is still in great shape.

    Thanks

    I would replace the pulley and bearings just for piece of mind.

    I had no idea they were heim style bearings.
    Basic as a rock fight....
    I would change them as well.

    Take care,
    Dave

    Do you mean it's common for these bearings to rip apart?
    On good U.S. highways!
    What kind of mileage on the others?


    I got to get in the habit of checking places like e-bay and craigs list$
    Thanks
