Curious whether any Switchback riders have had a problem with rear wheel bearing failure.

Mine went to hell at about 45,00 miles, and then again at about 50,000 and again at 53,000. Last time I replaced the rear wheel because the hub was badly damaged. I suppose the hub damage could have been missed at the second replacement.

On-line investigation suggests that there is a recurring problem with wheel bearings on the early FLD's. Friend of mine also has a 2012 FLD and his rear wheel bearing just went out at 38,000 miles. Seems like premature failure to me
