Front Wheel Bearing

Hi Graham, Triumph World did an article on renewing front wheel bearings (issue unmber 48, Feb/Mar 2003). If you do not have this magazine, the last part says "Screw on the main hub assembly's retaining nut. It's not desirable - and there's no need - to 'graunch' this tightly against the hub unit. Tighten the nut until it JUST grips the assembly, then back off anti-clockwise until the next available slot in the castellated nut aligns with one of the split pin holes through the stub axle". Hope this is of help Steve

but don't tighten too much if there is no free play in the front wheel bearings you will weld them to the stub , nip the nut finger tight and back off 1 flat & insert a new splitpin , the free play is in the manual, allows the bearing to expand as it gets really hot and also allows the disc to push back on the pads a little.
