As I recall no different than any other bearing replacement. Lift bike remove rear wheel, bottom shock mounts and the swingarm. You'll have to drift out the race and drift in a new one with something. I've used a big socket.

I hope this helps.

Search badweatherbikers.com

There are a couple of those documented. Since your bike is already apart it should make things a heck of a lot simpler for you.

Swingarm bearing are the same as steering neck bearings, which are the same as trailer wheel bearings. These can be had cheap at autozone, advanced auto etc.... I got Timkin bearings at autozone.

I used the special tool that worked great on removing them.

also, just so you know, there have been updates to the front and rear isolators for your bike.. may want to upgrade at least the rears while you have it apart.

is there a number on the bearing seals in your swingarm????

I dont remember which seal i used and from looking around it could be either 34823 or 12192TB....


The Bearing Race part number is L44610 and the Bearing is a L44643
