Bad rear wheel bearing

With 28,000 I was changing my chain and notice my rear wheel had some play in it. Removed rear wheel to find the brake side wheel bearing was toast. Check with the local Kaw dealer for bearings and seals they quoted me almost $90.00, so I went to the local bearing store and bought the three bearings and the two seals for $25.00

Great tip. We have a bearing store here that is just unbelievable. I will have to remember that in the future. I have about 16,000 miles to go to your mileage.
