Well, you could have done that in the first place but this is easy and everyone likes to help. Besides, when you ask a question the resulting posts may be helping countless other people in the quest for the knowledge and that's what it is all about here. Any question is a good question.harleyhog said:Now why didn't I just do that in the first place?
Ya learn summat new every day..................
Well he has the same bike as me ( Y2KFLHRCI ) and they sure as hell are sealed. Check into it man.FLHT said:I dont know where you came up with your info that there sealed. They have seals on the axle to keep the grease in and the dirt out , but they are not a "sealed bearing". They are to be cleaned and repacked every 10,000 miles. Look in your owners manual, its under Chassis Lubrication .
Just hope you don't practice what you preach or yours are going to be locking up on you one of these days.
FLHT said:My manual says to pack them. Guess I'll find out for sure this weekend when I put on the new rear tire. I know my 97 still had to be packed. Haven't had the rear off the 2000 yet.
Guess the best way to find out is to look and not trust books.
