Part: Front Disc Brake Wheel Bearing Retainer Tool for Honda CB200 / CB350G / CB360 / CB450 / CB550 / CB750
Why You Need This: A shaky ride, a shimmy vibration, or lateral play such as a wobble from side to side in the front wheel means you should replace your front wheel bearings. On Honda front disc brake models like the CB200, CB350G, CB360, CB450, CB550 and CB750 the front wheel bearing is held in place by a round bearing retainer with four square notches. While there are ways to remove the bearing retainer without the specific tool, it usually involves too much headache and you run the risk of destroying the bearing retainer. Using the Common Motor designed front disc brake bearing retainer tool will make the bearing replacement a breeze. Designed to be used with a 3/8” ratchet, this specialized tool has four square teeth to easily remove and then install the bearing retainer once you have placed your new front bearings. If your bearing retainer is already damaged, we have you covered.
Installation Tip: The wheel bearing retainer can be found on the drive chain or disc brake side of your vintage Honda. To make the removal easier, soak the retailer with penetrating oil and heat it thoroughly before attempting removal. Once you have replaced the bearings, use the bearing retainer tool to tighten the retainer back in place.
