Question about 2003 Ducati ST4

1 Answer

Wheel bearings Does anyone know off by heart what the SKF numbers for the wheel bearings on my model year (2004)? The front and rear wheels have four bearings all with the same part number. There are an additional two on the carrier with the same number but not the same as the other four.

If they are the same as the older models.... SKF #6005-2RS Measurements - 25mm ID x 47mm OD x 12mm width . It is often not recommended to remove the bearing and then reinstall it because there is a concern that the bearing could be damaged in its removal. This is because the bearing is installed by the outer race which does not put pressures or impacts on the bearings themselves but in the removal process the bearings are driven out by the inner race which puts a lot of force impact, and stresses on the bearings. If the bearings are the ones that I listed (I believe they probably are), then you may be able to find them at a local automotice parts supplier such as Auto Zone, Advance Auto, or other place, as this size is fairly common. Also, if you have the newer style spacer in the hub, you may need a blind bearing puller because you simply cannot push the spacer over to get to the inner race of the bearing. There is one notch on one side of the spacer, and it is a bit of a PITA to catch the lip of the inner race with a punch or screwdriver. Here is a picture of the newer style spacer that has ribbing on it....,,,

How to remove 2008 rear wheel fatboy


To remove a 2008 Softail rear wheel FIRST block motorcycle underneath the frame so that theweight of the motorcycle is off of the rear wheel, remove saddlebags if equipped, remove the belt guard and the debris deflector from the rear fork, inspect the wheel bearing end play and service the bearings if and as necessary, label the wheel spacers for left or right locationand orientation i.e. fork side or wheel side, remove the rear brake caliper from the caliper mount and support it using an elastic cord or such,For the FXCW/C modelsthe nut retainer will remain in the axle nut and does not need to be removed and if it is removed it must be replaced. For all but FXCW/C remove e-clip, remove the rear axle nut, and for FXCW/C remove the rear axle nut, loosen both axle adjuster screws an equal number of turns to remove tension from drive belt, with a suitable drift or other tool tap the axle towards the right side and remove it, remove the spacers and the caliper mounting bracket, move the wheel forward and slip the belt off of the sprocket, raise the motorcycle to allow enough clearance for removal of the rear wheel and pull the wheel with the belt sprocket from the rear fork.

To install a 2008 Softail rear wheel FIRST apply a light coat of wheel bearing grease to the axle, to the bearing bores and to the bore of the inner sleeve, roll the wheel into place in the rear fork and slide the drive belt over the drive sprocket, position the left bearing spacer between the wheel and the fork, from the right side carefully insert the axle (with its washer for FXCW/C models) through the right rear fork, the short spacer, the rear caliper mounting bracket, the long spacer and into the bearing bore, continue sliding the axle through the wheel hub sleeve, the left side spacer and the left rear of the fork, install the washer, the axle nut, and the retainer, verify correct axle alignment and the check belt deflection, check the wheel bearing end play after tightening the axle nut to the specified torque because excessive end play can adversely affect stability and handling and insufficient end play can cause bearing seizure, tighten the axle nut to 95-105 ft-lbs (128.8-142.5 Nm), install the belt guard and the debris deflector, install the brake caliper and pads, install the saddlebags, if equipped, pump the brake pedal to move the pistons out until they contact both brake pads, verify the piston location against pads, verify the position of the brake pads against the brake disc, rotate the wheel to check for any interference(s) or misalignment(s) and test the brakes for proper operation.

Im looking at a new front wheel 4 my 99 nighttrain what size is the existing bearing ? will a later wheel fit?


I'm pretty sure your '99 model uses the 3/4" wheel bearing while the later year models use a 1" bearing. I'm not sure what year they changed on your Softail. By looking for a change in the part number for the wheel bearing in a parts book will tell you what year they changed.

Good Luck

2006 Custom Sportster 1200, 19inch Harley Mag on the front. the Front End Wobbles at 90mph or above. Do I need a racing front end? This Harley is not slow... I am considering putting a CAM in it. It needs...


First, remove the front wheel and take it to a shop and have it computer balanced. On a mag wheel, the lead weights simply stick on and are notorious for coming off after a while. Make sure the wheel is balanced correctly and the "run out" of the wheel and tire is acceptable.

When you put the wheel back on the bike, check the wheel bearing end play. The book says that it should be between 0.004 - 0.018". I'd try to keep it below 0.010" in your case. Check the adjustment and "fall away" of the front end, tension on the steering head bearings. Since I don't have a manual for your year model Sportster, I must refer you to a dealer or authorized shop for this information.

Also. check the alignment of the rear wheel in the swing arm. The book shows the use of a straight edge place along side one edge of the front wheel to check the alignment of the rear wheel with the front wheel. Use a piece of straight angle aluminum.

Also, check your rear shock settings. A stiffer setting my help. If all else fails, there are places you can take your bike and they will check it on a frame jig to optimize the entire bike for proper alignment.

Good Luck

Front end feels rubbery, ive tried new tire, fork bearings,progressive springsm w/15wt oil, even ties a different set of forks. wheel bearings in front and rear have no play, rear swingarm does not have...


You mention front and rear wheel bearings have no play, but have you replaced them? I do remember part customers replacing the wheel bearings on the gl1200 at about 10,000 mile intervals because of what you describe. You do not mention the miles on the motorcycle but I think that if you replace the front and rear wheel bearings you will notice a huge difference in how your Gl1200 handles. I do not think it will be necessary to do anything with the final drive bearings. Remember to regrease the spline on the final drive with Moly60 grease before reinstalling the rear wheel. I have replaced the wheel bearings on my GL1000 ( around 125,000 miles) several times and handling always improves.

Bearing of the front wheel need to be replaced every 2-3 months, is it problem related to my bike or is it due to the front disc brakes. Do any of you guys face the same problem and do we have a solution...


Bearings should last much longer especially if you fit the genuine ones.
While replacing the bearings it is highly recomended tht the( dust ) seals should also be replaced.
The brake disc has nothing to do wth the bearings.
This time if you have to replace the bearing, get a good brand one SKF or KOYO.
Hope this helps!
