    Front Wheel bearings different for 1988 model NT650

    In looking for front wheel bearings for my 1988 NT650, I noticed that the bearings part numbers differ from the 1989+ models.
    Are the bearings really different ? They surely cost a lot different. No, it is not due the CA model. The dust seals are the same.

    Who is a good source of front wheel bearings if not using Honda parts ?

    anyone choosing to save money by using chinese-made wheel bearings is taking an unnecessary risk.

      The bearings are the same.
      6004UU in the Honda part# description is a bearing industry part#.
      Bearings can be obtained at an industrial supply house or bearing specialist.
      As squirrelman stated purchase quality bearings.

        Thanks Ziggy. Seemed strange to have different Honda numbers and prices.
        Now, I do see that the "6004UU" is specified in the bearing description for both bikes.

        Online, adeptpowersports.com seems to be the cheapest and genuine Honda parts. I had not heard of them before. http://www.adeptpowersports.com/

        Are the Honda bearings pre-lubricated or do I need to grease them before installation?
        The manual does not mentioning greasing them.

        Happy and safe 4th of July.

          It is a sealed bearing that can not be lubricated.

            I just picked up some gauge gaskets from them...price was reasonable as was shipping cost, but they take their time shipping it out.
