    Front & Rear Wheel Bearings for the Rocket Roadster.
    Many of us have had to replace these, including myself (3 rear wheel sets so far in 53K miles).
    I have finally measured out the bearings. In an attempt to help ameliorate the apparent confusion in researching & ordering these wheel bearings, I have prepared two charts:

    I hope this helps . . .

    I assume "Ta" is better than "tish & pish"?

    Ta is a simple way of saying Thank You, I was starting to look at front and rear wheel bearings for when I powder coat my wheels so a big ta from me also.

    As stated by our Exiled Scot - It is a form of saying thanks - mainly in the northern UK - A word most likely of Viking heritage.

    Sent out a number of inquiries to see if we can find a quality set without involving any mystery garbage out of China.

    Will follow up with answers, hopefully we can find a one stop shop for good quality full front and rear set.

    So then, the Touring has the same part numbers even though the wheels are different size?
