Question about 2005 Aprilia ETV 1000 Caponord
Hi everyone19000 mls and the right hand side front wheel bearing is completely trashedflat bearings crumbling and totaly vapourised bearings. yes i do powerwash the bike occassionally,and i do torque the front wheel spindle to the correct numbers,the left hand bearing is OK,this is the second time the right hand bearing has failed,this time more dramatic than the 1st,no warning,no rusty watermarks, Still only £20 for new bearings and seals what the hell,nothing else has gone wrong,and she still rattles the rev-limiter. ,Here's a tip to make your bearing last a bit longer - applies to all bikes - remove the black rubber seal using a fine bladed screw driver, carefully prising it out from the centre. Practise on the old bearing first. Once the rubber seal is off just look a see how much (or how little) grease the manufacturers put in there - add some good qualilty grease. pop back the seals and fit. May have do both sides Works for dirt bikes and especailly if you pressure wash your bike. ,,,
