Yep, I ordered a new rear tire from them for my Vision a couple of days ago when I noticed it was a bit more squirrelly than usual goin’ over some tar snakes last week and after closer inspection the left sides gone on my E3 after 11,000 miles & that’s about my usual life span on rear tires. Got a new belt & wheel bearings to put in while she’s up in the air this week.

At what millage should we be replacing the bearings?

I’m putting on a new belt at 64,000 miles & I do wheel bearings every other tire change. There’s no set interval for replacing wheel bearings, they need to be inspected every time the wheel’s off & then it’s a judgment call-they’re inexpensive & I’m a firm believer in preventive maintenance.

Do you have the brand and part numbers?

6304 2RS bearings are what your looking for-lots of brands out there & almost impossible to buy any that aren't made in china. I'm using SKF ones off my parts shelf. My tire's tracking number tells me it will be here today & it snowed last night so it should be a good day to be in the garage.

they don't make radial front for magnums 21" gotta rum bias front and rear on Magnums in order to match up
...or run Dunlop's if you want radial.

No solution from Dunlop on wet traction for the front tire yet, but the E4's for the rear have a lot better wet traction than the E3's!
