Part: Honda CB350 / CB360 Rear Wheel Bearing Kit
Why You Need This: Let's take a second and think about how important the wheel bearings are on your Honda CB350 or CB360. Wheel bearings to allow the wheels of your bike rotate smooth and free while giving you precise and predictable control when riding. However wheel bearings wear out and can cause excessive play in your hub and wheel wobble, which will just get worse. If you see that the rear wheel bearings on your Honda are leaking grease, feel "crunchy", the wheel feels like it's not turning smoothly or has lateral play (back and forth movement perpendicular to the axle) then it's time to replace your wheel bearings.
Our wheel bearing kit fits the rear wheel of all Honda CB350 and CB360 models (CL350 Scrambler, SL350, CL360 Scrambler, CJ360) with drum brake and includes both drive side (large) and brake side (small) bearing and dust seal. While you have the back wheel off go ahead and revive your rear brake with some new brake shoes. It is also good to change the front wheel bearings. as well. Bearing kits are available for front drum brake wheels and disk brake front wheels.
Installation Tip: Remove the old bearing using a long punch. When installing the new ones, heat up the wheel hub with a heat gun in order to temporarily expand the metal and make installation easier. To push the new bearings in, use a large socket or a piece of tubing that it is about the same diameter of the bearing's outer race. Never push on the inner race of the bearing as you can damage or destroy the bearing.
