I replaced the stock wheel bearings at 105K front and 135K rear.
next change was at 219K front and 243K rear. I replaced the sproket bearings at the same time as the rear wheel bearings.

I should replace mine just because I know the bike did go through Alaska. Plus, I know my sprocket carrier bearing is toast. The outer seal is cracked and a chunk is missing.
