Question about Honda CB 250 Motorcycles

1 Answer

Front wheel bearing removal.

Hi. I have a Honda CB250, year 2000, and I need to replace the front wheel bearings. I've taken off the seals but cannot figure out how to take the bearings out. On one side there are two notches that indicate that there may be a spacer that can be unsrewed. That would solve the problem, but I'm just a guessing/hoping here. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers, David

    Many thanks for your quick reply. The thing is, there is a metal tube between the two bearings which has exactly the same inside diameter and I can't get a purchase on them. It's driving me nuts, 'cause I know there must be a solution. Anyone else?

The bearings get punched out of the hub evenly. Just take a small to medium sized hammer and a large punch and drive the old bearings outward from the center of the hub. Install the new bearings somewhat more gently than the old ones came out. The bearings must go into the hub straight. Tap them in with a plastic hammer. Once the bearing is started, place the old bearing on top of the new one and strike around the outer rim of the old bearing to seat the new bearing.

    There should be room to shift the position of the axle distance collar so that it no longer lines up with the bearings. Give it a try.

    Did you download the service manual?

Replace front wheel bearing 2009 Honda accord


Hello James.
I don't wish to insult you but replacing the front wheel bearing of a front wheel drive vehicle requires the sort of tool kit and skill level that if you need to ask how you do you do it you are unlikely to possess.

By the time a wheel bearing needs replacing it has been subjected to years of heat, cold and moisture and removing the bearing from the hub can be fraught with difficulties not covered by an average repair manual, difficulties which needs experience and equipment to overcome.
As if that isn't bad enough the work needed to clean and prepare the hub to accept the new bearing needs the realisation the assembly is a piece of precision equipment requiring very high standards if the replacement bearing is to have the best chance of returning a good life-span. This is also true of actually fitting the new bearing where if pressure isn't applied correctly it can be ruined in a second or have it's working life seriously shortened.

I suggest you ask an experienced someone else to fit the bearing this time while you observe.

I have a 1993 GMC Safari that started making a strange noise from the front end I have taken it to 2 mechanics they both tell me that the problem is the wheel bearing. 1 says the bearing is in a sealed...


I just re-packed the front end bearings. Haynes covers the brakes real well, but not the bearings. Each front wheel has two bearings (one inside the wheel). So you have to remove the wheels, brakes, dust cap, grease seal and brake rotor to access the bearings. .
Expect to replace the grease seal because the rubber will be brittle or hard. Clean and inspect the bearings and races real well. If the bearings are squealing expect to replace some of them also.
Replacing the brakes so the pads stay in place is the trickiest part.

To fit front wheel bearings honda xr 125


Support the bike. Remove front axle nut and remove the axle, releasing the front wheel. Using a flat screwdriver, remove the rubber seals. Use a blunt object that will fit through the axle hole along with a hammer to drive each of the 2 bearings out from the back side. Work by tapping lightly and working around the bearing a little at a time until it pops out. Replace each of the bearings in a similar fashion, working slowly and carefully until the first bearing is in. Install the center bearing spacer tube and install the other bearing. Next replace the dust seals and reinstall the wheel.

How to replace front wheel bearings on a Honda Accord 2000?


Hi:
Changing the front wheel bearings on your Honda Accord are a bit of work: You must remove both front hub assemblies, and that entails undoing the axle nut, the tie rod , the brake caliper, and the other attachpoints on the hub. Then the wheel bearing needs to be pressed out of the hub. I usually have a machine shop do this for me. This is just a basic overview of the process, but wanted to let you know what you are in for...hope this helps!

2wd front wheel need to replace bearings or hub assembly which is best


A Front Wheel Drive Vehicle Can Have Two Types Of Rear Wheel Bearings: Serviceable Bearings, Or Nonserviceable, Sealed Bearings. When Sealed Bearings Fail, The Bolts Holding The Bearing And Hub To The Axel Or Control Arm Must Be Removed. When Installing The New Bearing Assembly, Torque The Bolts To Specifications.Some Manufacturers require The Use Of New Fasteners When Rear Bearings And Hubs Are Replaced.

When A Serviceable Wheel Bearing Is Used, The Bearing Can Be Disassembled And Packed With Grease.It Is Serviced Like A Front Wheel Bearing On A Rear-wheel-Drive-Car.

Replacing the front wheel bearings of a Honda Accord 1993 SE


yes you need a press to remove the bearing and hub , you can use the same hub as long as where the hub goes into the bearing is not scored in any way . the knuckle would have to be taken off and sent to a machine shop if you done have a press. and you should also use caution when putting the nut back on thr axle.
