I changed my rear tire today. I found the bearing on the drive sline side is loose in the fit. Does this mean I have to get another rear wheel? I'm figuring the bearings failed and were replaced. The outer race is loose in the wheel. I bought the scooter used. It has 21000 miles on it.

On my 2003, I found mine loose too. on the left side I could turn the wheel sideways and it would drop out and the right side was snug but I pulled it with a big headed nail and Vise-Grips. The The 2008 was loose enough to remove it without a puller, just the nail and pliers.

I would start by removing the failed bearing and put in a new one, the right size and all and see how it fits... rather easy to do...

while you are at it, replace both of them...



you can make your own press-tool with a few simple off the shelf pieces.

Le Dude.
I like your videos, very helpful. I'm going to replace the bearings. But I think someone has replaced them before the wheel's fit is sloppy. I may center punch the wheel in several places and Blue Lock Tight the bearing into the wheel. If that fails. I will buy a used wheel. Thanks again. ED
