Yeah, I was out riding with a buddy, had ridden some, stopped for lunch, then thought we'd ride a little further, over to the Twin Bridges area of Grand Lake in North East Oklahoma. Beautiful day in the mid 70's no clouds, and really not much wind. On the way back, 20 miles from home, I heard one little "chirp" sound, then two, a little further 3 or 4 more, and then I KNEW it was coming from MY front wheel. Yep! looks like I crushed a front wheel bearing.
I had to ride biotch back to get His truck and trailer. Back home safe in an hr. or so. anyway,...Heres the kicker,
I called the local dealer, and they wanted something like $70.00 plus tax just for 2 bearings and the races, for an '04 Vtx1800, just the parts!!! AND ofcorse, they had to order them, get 'em in about a week!! WHAT???
I called a place online, (I'll let ya know with a link later) but they had a "kit" with the left and right bearings With race seals for the Whoping price of $22.00 plus shipping. OEM bearing kit for less than 1 bearing at the local level,
"OK, I'll order them myself" "Thank you Prosports of Joplin. Always love talkin' to yaz, but I can't afford you".
