Find the Correct Sprocket Carrier Bearing. How to Identify Which Bearing You Require






Identifying the correct sprocket carrier bearing


Motorcycle manual or handbook/Motorcyle cross reference chart

If your manual or handbook clearly identifies the bearings you require go straight to our on line bearing shop site.

You can cross reference your motorcycle against our specified bearing list, using the drop down menu on the left and selecting either off road or make of bike. We suggest you make a note of the bearing designations before going to our on line bearing shop site.

Neither of the above - how to identify your bearings

Most ball, roller and plain bearings carry a designation which is most often found on the side face on the inner and or outer rings of the bearing.

Where the bearing is sealed the designation can usually be found on the seal face.

The designation identifies the bearing type, size and other features and is usually all that is needed when ordering.

If it is not possible to read the designation then identification can be made by one of the following:-

1. The maintenance manual or instruction details will sometimes state which bearings are used

2. We are happy to assist with identification - please send the bearing with as much detail as possible about where the bearing is being used

3. By measuring the bearing - you will require 3 measurements, firstly the ID or bore size, secondly the OD and finally the width or thickness.

How to use our on line shop

Our bearings are listed firstly by type.

Select type of bearing required. Virtually all motorcyle wheel bearings are single row deep groove ball bearings, which is the first type of bearing listed.

Select single row deep groove ball bearings and you will be presented with a drop down selection of bearing series commencing with the 6000 series.

Select the series appropriate to your requirements e.g. 6000 or 6002 ect.

Within the series bearings are listed by ascending inner diameter with dimensions being shown by inner (ID), outer (OD) and width (W). Identify the bearing and buy your particular bearings.
