Triarm bearings

Post by EvilSpike » Tue Sep 25, 2018 1:36 am

Zombie thread revival!

I wish to replace the five roller bearings in the linkage, I've got slight play in one of the three pivots and figure I might as well refresh the whole linkage. Does anyone know the code for the bearing marked in the parts diagram as BEARING-NEEDLE,BM202715 please?

I'd like to get all five from a bearing factors rather than pay the £75 KHI will want for them.

Thank you :)

I've just replaced all of mine with Kawasaki OEM bearings.

From memory I measured the sizes and checked a few bearing suppliers, but there was no real price difference, and as I was doing all of the suspension parts I just went with OEM...and a £300 bill...

You can also look on eBay for NOS listings, remember as well that you might need to change your grease seals and internal tubes too...

You're probably right, I'm just being a wee bit of a cheapskate. Still, if it's a standard bearing a quality one could be about £7 which makes the job half price on that front...

I'll keep looking but suspect I'll end up at the Kawasaki parts desk...
