Am I missing a bearing? 1VJ rear wheel

Got a new inner tube fitted today at a reliable tyre place locally, but stupidly handed them the wheel with the sprocket, cush drive and drum brake attached, which they handed back to me in a bag with the wheel when they finished . Went to refit the wheel , cleaning everything before it went in, (so tyre place closed by this time) and I appear to be missing the bearings, of all things, on the side where the drum brake sits. I can't find an exploded view anywhere. And I don't understand how a bearing could just fall out (the centre spacer fell out ) . Anyone know if there should be a bearing or spacer there? Anyone got an exploded view they can point me at?

Thanks
Kirst

Hi Kirst, It sounds like you are missing the bearing.Not long ago I had the rear wheel re-spoked on my 600Z Tenere. The bearing was a little loose and fell out. It didn't seem that loose at any point when I checked for play in the hub. In the end I had to have the hub sleved and a new bearing fitted at the local bike shop (he's pretty exceptional at engineering jobs). If you look closely at the picture with the bearing in you can actually see a gap.

Hope this helps.

How did you get on with the bearing? I got an old set of wheels for my 1VJ and had the same problem when I tried to put new beearings. I used some loctite 660 which is a green gel and it worked fine, they are still there after a few thousand km.

Regards, Dave

I've seen people hitting the surface the bearing meets with a hammer and a screwdriver to make some small rough "craters" and bums. The bearing would then have som stuff to grip.

The trouble is, if the bearing has enlarged the housing, burrs and bruises aren't likely to last long, locktight's better but a sleeve's the best.

The scenerio I talk about was in combination with loctire, sorry I missed that. It seems like it work.

No question about the sleeve being the best option, short of a new hub =)
