Both my front and back wheel spin smoothly with no noise, but I have 100000 km on them. How often should the wheel bearingsbe changed? I don't believe they have ever been changed.

Thanks

As long as you are certain that there is no noise or roughness don't worry about them unless they are leaking from the seals. You can listen more carefully if you use a stethescope to listen for noise and roughness.

To test the wheel bearings simply elevate either the front or rear wheel off the ground and try to move the wheel from side to side. There should be no free play. If you detect some freeplay, it is a very good idea to replace those bearings.

I suppose at 100,000km they can't be an awful lot of life left in them, even if they are okay right now. Why not get a set and have them handy for when you replace tyres next time round? :)

Good suggestion. Leave them alone until the next change of rubber. The bearings are not very expensive anyway and 100,000 kms can't be too far off the life expectancy of them. I'm off to bed now, the night shift will be taking over here about now, probably about late afternoon in the USA now! :dude:
