Ummm how many bearings in Grande front wheel

scott norwood /

I spilled my bearings. Think I got them all but just wondering if anyone has an exact number. How many are in the front hub?

Also, any one have an exploded view of the front hub/wheel?

Gracias.

Scot,

There one bearing listed for each side of the front wheel #9 in the picture which is part number 113817, according to the parts manual.

Scott,

But if it part number 36 on the drawing then there are 22. I don't know if that is 11 on each side or 22 on each side.

Not sure the number of ball bearings (I think that's what you're asking), but you just gotta get enough in there so there's no gaps between them, but they're not bunched up. Use some wheel bearing grease to stick 'em in there.

I forget the exact size of those ball bearings, but they're the same as the ones for mountain bike back wheels, so any bicycle shop should carry them. I lost a couple last time I had my wheel apart and replaced them no problem.
