Wheel (and other) bearings

I recently replaced the wheel bearings and seals on my 2018 Speedmaster and I found the OEM ones were NSK brand and I could get these for 1/3rd the price from Simply Bearings (https://simplybearings.co.uk). I made two purchases and the free delivery option came next day by 1st class post. :slight_smile:

The same wheel bearings parts are used across most of the range of modern Triumphs so I thought it would be useful to show the OEM part number and link to the exact item I bought. Assuming OEM bearings are standard tolerance sort, not some special ones, then the bearings should be identical items. The seals are of a random brand but same twin-lip construction.

I never buy OEM bearings. Just take the old sample to a bearing supplier and get them to match for me. Saves a fortune.
