Roelf, Suggestion on nicks in powder coat on front rim; Find fingernail polish that matches to use for touch-up.

Thanks man, was wondering what to do with those two spots, I'll give that a go.

I haven’t tried it, but I read somewhere you can make a good locking tool from a section of a broken belt and a piece of wood. Wrap the piece of wood around the sprocket and screw the ends to the wood. It shouldn’t be too hard to work out something along those lines.

And this as well! Thanks.

Bearing assembly looks good Etennuly. Probably telling that is was beefed up.

I don't have mine apart yet. According to a very helpful lengthy conversation with Lance at St Paul HD, it was determined that this new style combined bearing and spacer became the standard after some date in early 06.

The load bearing capability of this one I would think could handle several times the load. The incorporated spacer transfers a large part of its load to the inner row of ball bearings. Where you see the ball bearings in my picture, there is a second row on the other side.

I don't see a failure in the future of this new bearing assembly from its normal loading. I am excited to see if mine has the old separated type and how this fits in its place.

Going to be a couple of weeks before I get back to this job. I will take pics and report back when I get there.

LOL makes sense why I couldn't pull out the "spacer" with my thumb and forefinger.

So Nate, your bike has this upgraded larger number of balls one piece assembly then?

I guess so. I dug out the 2008 manual and there it was clear as day.
Yeeesss I know I should have had the book open on my lap before touching the bike (But I'm dumb).

I drove it to work today in the lovely 34F drizzle and it ran fine.
I really think it was the tires now.
They're not much better than rim protectors now : )
I had to be really gentile with the control inputs. Spun the rear in second - woke me right up and went to tiptoe mode!

Ha! I guess sometimes it could be possible to have what sounds like a bad tire actually be a bad tire! but who would have thunk it?!?

Not something you dare hope with a Uly, no.
