I'm in the middle of doing my front wheel bearings. I've got everything apart to the point where the right bearing is exposed and ready to come out. The left side, however, I'm not sure. The as-always-unhelpful Honda service manual says "remove dust cover and retainer."

How? Here's what I'm looking at. The metal piece with the tabs is more or less floating in there, held in place with two tabs that go under the rubber dust seal.

So how does this all come out in order to get to the bearing?

Thanks!

Looking at the picture...I'm thinking you have to get that seal out first. Hopefully a new one comes with the bearings.

take a screwdriver I use my big one and carefully pry the small narrow seal up and off and then the speedo drives will come out.

Pry between the top of the drive and the bottom of theseal so you don't bend the drives.

Actually I just put the screwdriver where I want it and hit the handle in a down motion. and the seal pops off.

Just did it this morning,

I agree with JBz, thats how I got my dust seat out when I had to replace the speedo drive after the dog ears bit the dust. Wasn't hard and didn't cause any damage to the seal

New bearings are sealed and don't have to be repacked or greased. The rear is a bit more difficult simply because there's more stuff to remove in order to get the wheel off. But once the wheels are off, they're both about the same to do.

Nice rotas.

Very pretty if you can say that about rotas!

I found this thread looking for info on how to remove the bearings for service while I am waiting for parts for my 86 Interstate. Am I understanding from GS MacLean's post there is no need/way to grease the bearings? My wheel feels great but the bikes history is not known and I have found a few suprises (90 wt fork oil was kinda cool). I was only going into the wheel deeper due to the unknown prior maintainance. I am replacing the fork seals, dust covers and slider bushings as well as rebuilding the stuck calipers and lots of cleaning. Anything else that I should give some loving while I am in there? Any service needed for the TRAC system? Thanks, Steve
