First took off fender so didnt have to jack up too high(didntt want too much pressure on belly pan.
Then undid big nut on left and 2 hex screws underneath.
Pulled out axel quite easily then removed spacers and put back in place for safe keeping.
removed the seals with screwdriver (just pop out)
then tapped out bearings from inside to out making sure not to hit the inside of the wheel
once out cleaned it up put one bearing back tapping gently into place
then center tube followed by other bearing greased inside of dust seals and popped back
then cleaned and greased axel put spacers back and slid axel through (had to push brake bads back slightly to get disc in so gently pumped front brake when all together)
then tightened up all screws (dont over tighten)
and now runs true without wobbly cornering cheers

Did you replace with OEM bearings?
Has anyone checked if there are better quality bearings??

Over here the law says you have to drink beer with any fix-it task. Then you can't try out the improvement until the next day. LOL

Thanks for posting this.... My Swing had ever since the wheel powder coating and new rear tyre developed a noticeable handlebar wobble at 25-35mph, which is now much better thanks to heavier bar ends, but still just noticeable if you have only one hand on the bars. My S'wing has done 27,000 miles and having seen your photos I thought I'd check the front bearings....... Did the front wheel wobble test, (someone leans on the back so the front wheel is off the ground, and free to wobble about) and there is a bit of play which would indicate that they are on their way out. Have booked my wing in for the bearings to be changed.

Will let you know if this makes much difference when riding.

Nope. I don't have the time at the moment. Sad I work/study full time, and have a young family that I don't want to neglect..... Time is at a premium and if I was to do the work myself it would eat into the time I get for actually riding. Although I have done simple stuff in the past and a little bit of tinkering, I always end up spending two to three times as long as I had intended.... !!! Exclamation Question Surprised

This way I can drop the scoot off, and carry on with my written work on a laptop at a nearby cafe or maybe the supermarket. I'm finishing off another undergraduate degree, and a postgrad certificate in June, so things are hotting up for me study wise at the moment. If I pass, I want to persuade my boss to let me try and integrate some new techniques into general practice at work. Alas am thoroughly fed up with study at the moment... I shouldn't have taken on so much.... I plan on having a break from study after June 2009. We live and learn!! The bike and scoot, and notably riding them, keep me sane and grounded.

Happy Riding

PostSubject: New front wheel bearings on my 27k Swing, notice able ride improvement   Out with the old in with the new (sadly not scoot) I_icon_minitimeSat May 16, 2009 3:31 pm

OK the front bearings were changed on my S'wing, and have made a big improvement to the ride, much less hint of wobble at 25 to 35mph. Well worth the effort to have them changed, and I'd recommend this to anyone as a suggestion to consider to help address the wobble if you have one....
