Hi everyone,

Just want to double check, XH front wheel bearings are the same as EL and EL XR yes? My supplier only has "XH" in stock but I was certain they are the same..

And just to double check also, the torque specifications are 30nm while rotating, back off half a turn then do up 5nm yes? Just seems so little for wheel bearings..

Thanks all for the advice!

If they have ABS rings, they're good to use.

Sorry, I just assumed you were replacing the rotor.
It's not too often the bearings go before the disc is worn out.

If that's the case, same same.

Just reading my DBA disc instructions this arvo... Their spec is 30 while rotating then back off and do up to 1.5nm so goodluck finding a torque wrench to measure that... I usually do them to feel... Once the bearings seated into the outer races properly all you need is to stop them coming back out... They don't need to be tight or you'll just chop them out...

Cheers,
Tim
