i just registered to this site, was told the guys on this forum know a bout the best parts to buy for the most abuse. I will be chainging my front wheel bearings hopefully tomorrow, and front upper a arm bushings. Do you guys have any advice on what kind of front wheel bearings i should buy for running in the mud, and tracks in the winter, im looking for some bearings that will take a beating! Thankyou in advance to anybody out there reading this post!

For the life of me I can't find this in the manual. I've got an 05 KVF 700. Everything you mentioned I did, but I've got a break line that runs to the caliper through the knuckle that I need to disconnect if I want to remove the knuckle.

It looks like there's a circlip on one side of the bearing but not on the other holding it in place, does it matter which way the bearing comes out or will it only slide out of one side?

thanks

The bearing will only come out one way. The big c-clip is on the side the bearing goes in/out, there's a shoulder that the bearing butts up against on the other side.

For the brake line I just unbolt the caliber from the knuckle and hang it from the a-arm or somthing with a piece of wire. That way you don't have to bleed the brakes like if you pull the line off.

Ok I see that with the bearing. I unmounted the caliper from the rotor (2 bolts), but do I remove the brake line? If I do, the manual talks about blowing air in and cleaning up brake fluid but if I don't unmount that bolt and the brake line I have to do all the bearing work while being constrained by brake line kind of a pta.

I ordered 2 new front wheel bearings. The package included 2 seals as well. I didn't see any seals in there when I removed the old bearings though so I'm not sure what they're for.

When inserting the new bearings do you need to apply moly or lithium grease?

I read about heating the bearing housing and throwing the bearings in the freezer to help.
