Victory wants $ 41.00 for a wheel bearing, front and rear (the same for 2003-2006 Kingpins and Vegas). The seals are 21.00 each. TALK ABOUT a RIPOFF!!

Only have 19,000 on mine and they are making a noise!! Will sound kind of like something grinding and will be worst on turns. It does not start by doing it all of the time.

So far, I found only one that is bad, but figured I would go ahead and change out all of them. According to my dealer, they should be changed about every 20K for the roads we ride around here. Mostly mountain roads with lots of hair pin curves. Straight away driving, they should last longer. The twisties put more pressure on the bearings as more weight is distributed on one side.

Looking to get some spare wheel bearings. Need some help please.

In the old thread above BIKERIDERGA referenced part number 6304-2RS. This is a sealed BALL bearing. Commonly used in water pumps.

Can someone who has looked please confirm this part number on the bearings that come from the factory. (I don't want to pry off a seal). Seems odd that ball bearings are used instead of CYLINDRICAL ROLLER bearings (NU 304) which have roughly twice the load rating.

Any advice appreciated.

Just an FYI. Wheel bearing problems are not only a Victory issue. I had a wheel bearing fail on my Buell Ulysses at around 10,000. Thankfully the dealer took care of all cost associated with it and returned the bike in a very timely manner. As has been stated in both previous posts and in various other threads you can get this bearing from an outside source for less money. Most likely wont be able to look it up by application so get the number off of the old bearings and go to your local auto parts store and have them cross reference them.
