Front Wheel Bearings (2007) - Important!

Hey All, I just changed out my wheels bearings on a whim of an idea to do so, and found that they were in really bad shape. My Burgie has 23,000 miles on it and I was noticing a little front wheel shimmy as it decelerated. I read about the poor bearings (only sealed on one side) Suzuki used OEM. I used All-Balls Racing bearings to replace them. When I got the old ones out, the bearing grease was gritty and black. They grinned as I manually rotated them. I was shocked.

My gas mileage has gone up 3-5mpg and the ride is so much better, esp turning.
If you have an 07 and haven't changed them out yet, I highly recommend doing asap. I am pretty sure the bearings were bad way back in the early mileage.

Hope that helps!

Need a bit more info - where to find them . . .

I can add this to my list of stuff to do.

However, I went to what I think is their website but they don't list a Burgman at all. What is the part numbers and the correct website of where you got them.

Got an email back this moring from All Balls - they do not make the front wheel bearing for the 2009 model, so I would suspect that they also don't make it for the 2010 and up either.

No comment from them (I asked them in my inquiry) as to what the difference is.

I did some parts fiche checking and here's what I found out:

2005 - 15 x 35 x 11

2007 - 15 x 35 x 11

2009 - 15 x 35 x 11

So, I wonder why All Balls said they didn't have a part for the 09? If I remember correctly, it should be a 6202.

If they're the same bearings, I wonder if it the ones I have in a sealed package I bought for the 05 back in 07/08 are still good? Just curious.

Here is the link to All Balls Bearings to contact them. I heard they are quite professional and helpful. I'd be interested if that is the case if someone contacts them to find out about the '09 bearings.
I did and all they said is that they don't stock them. They didn't bother to answer my other questions. I'll see what my latest question brings. I went to their size PDF and yes, it still shows the 6202-2RS bearings so I asked them what the cost is for a couple of those bearings and seals.

Correct link, but they only list 2003 - 2008 for the 400 and 2003 - 2009 for the 650.

I still think it's strange that even though the 2005, 2007 and 2009 have the same bearing size, All Balls doesn't list it for the 2009. Maybe they'll write back today.
