Front/Rear Wheel Bearing Re-Useable ?
I'm planning to get wheels powder coated on a 2007 Honda CBR600RR soon. Or was hoping to... then I started researching DIY's for the past two days and I can't find a firm answer...
Once the bearings are removed (the bike is all OEM right now), can I re-use the same bearings to put back into the bike SAFELY ? (Safe as in... 9.9+/10 times people do not die or crash or cause worse damage from this)
I have seen one thread say that you must re-use because it warps or is damaged upon removal. I have seen another thread say that you can re-use as long as it's removed properly.
Well lets assume I do it properly by _____________ (insert the safest way to do this, even if its a tool I have to rent I'm ok with that). Is there a way to look at the bearing upon removal to see if I can reuse it or not ?
Please don't tell me bearings and kits are cheap either... I'm located in Canada and the cheapest I've found shipped to me so far is about $80-100 per wheel... my powdercoat is only going to cost me $200... (yes that's a lot to most of you still, I'm in Canada, so no, as much as I would love to I can't ship mine to TriPage, its $300.00 minimum to ship there one way for two wheels...)
THANKS IN ADVANCE ! =D
