    Front wheel Bearing assembly help

    Nuts, I just got the three spoked wheels back from the powder coater (sliver metalic) and they look really nice ,but now I need to reassemble the front wheel bearings and I think I remeber how they go back together, but it just doesnt' look right.


    Isn't it ......

    1. clip ring
    2. large bearing (Smooth side of wheel)
    3. spacer
    4. skinny bearing (Hollow side of wheel)

    I am not at home where I could look in a book right now. I would like to get these in before I leave work.
    Thanks for any assistance

    Order:

    1. Lock Ring

    2. 16mm bearing

    3. spacer

    4. 12mm bearing

    Look at Parts fiche at Max BMW:

    under wheels

    Also, I found some more badges for you. Check other thread.

    Thanks, I did look at Max earlier, but just wanted to confirm. Eventhough the price difference was an indicator of the size difference on the parts fiche, it is often many times not the case. I love Max BMW they always put M&Ms in my order!
    I feel confident to let the guy with the press work his magic now, thanks again.

    Not the price, but the bearing sizes are given in the text.

    Ooops, my bad, I saw that (25X47X12) and (25X47X16), but didn't realize that it was refering to any knid of size measurement. Thought it was just some other type of refence or part number. Thanks, Learning has occurred.

    Possibly too many of the BLUE M&Ms?

    Stick with the RED ones. They are much better for you.

    But make sure MAX doesn't throw in any of the PURPLE ones with the next order or you'll be up all night.

    The YELLOW ones are pretty cool too.
