Part: Rear Wheel Bearing & Seal Kit for Honda CB175 / CL175 / SL175 / CB200 / CL200
Why You Need This: You just took your Honda CB175 / CL175 Scrambler / SL175/ CB200 or CL200 out for the first ride of the season. Now there is a wiggle from your rear wheel that was not there last year, the wheel bearings may finally have given up. Rear wheel bearings are often a neglected part and can wear out after all the miles you or the previous owner put on your machine, not to mention the possible water filled mud puddles ridden through, letting moisture seep into your bearings. Worn out rear wheel bearings and can cause excessive play in your hub and your wheel to wobble perpendicular to the axle. Do not put off replacing these as wear on the wheel bearings only gets worse the more they are used. Other signs that your Honda CB175 / CL175 / SL175 / CB200 / CL200 needs a new rear wheel bearing kit include: Oozing grease from the center of the wheel hub, a rubbing or crunching sound when spinning the wheel and a side to side lateral movement of the wheel.
Our Honda CB175 / CL175 / CB200 / CL200 rear wheel bearing kit includes top notch European made bearings and a new axle dust seal. While you have the rear wheel off your bike, it is a good time to rebuild the rear brake with some new brake shoes. Additionally, front wheel bearings for the Honda CB175 / CL175 / CL200 equipped with a front drum brake or front wheel bearings for the CB200 with the front disc brake are also available.
Installation Tip: Use a heat gun on the hub to expand the aluminum and make removing the old bearings and installing the new bearings a lot easier. Snap ring pliers will be needed to remove the large snap ring under the dust seal that holds the bearing in one side. A long punch or drift will help you remove the old bearings easily but be careful not to damage the hub when driving them out. A large socket or a tube just smaller than the new bearing's outer race (diameter) should be used to drive in the new bearings. Do not press on the inner race or the blue dust covers as you will damage the bearing while installing it.
