Sprocket Carrier Bearing & Local Bearing Supply Houses

Checked the two local bearing supply houses today for a replacement for the sprocket carrier bearing. Had the old bearing with me, all cleaned up so the numbers were readable. They each measured it, read the numbers, and commented that "those aren't normal numbers". Then they looked up the bearing in their systems.

Shop A said, nearest bearing is in Kentucky, $56.00, a week to deliver it.

Shop B said, nearest bearing is in New Jersey, $73.00, no idea how long it will take to get here.

So much for shopping locally.

What online sources have you used that have provided high quality bearings in a reasonable time without such a high price?

I too tried a local bearing specialist. They got me a couple different versions of what THEY thought were correct. None were. I went to the local dealer for it. Pivot Works bearings was the answer. In fact, the carrier came with two wheel bearings as a kit, including the seals.

I got mine at a local agricultural equipment store. I was shocked that they were made in Russia.

Jath, unless it's an emergency I use oem bearings from the vehicle's manufacturer. MR Cycle shows it for $58.54. Some dealers can do an inventory search and order it in for you from whoever has it for no additional charge. Ive done that quite a few times with my dealer.
MR shows that bearing as Part # 09262-28040
Dimensions listed are" 28mm X 68mm X 20mm.
Your profile doesnt show year of your Vstrom, so I just picked '05.

When I replaced my carrier bearing in August, I ordered from Quality Bearings Online based in the UK. Bit weird, but they were quality NSK bearings.

It was about 27 GBP which was about 35 USD including shipping. And it shipped from the UK to Sioux Falls SD about a day. Which is nuts. DHL rocks.

Been using that bearing for nearly 3000 miles and still smooth. So I can vouch for them.

I got mine from Amazon for $8; this is only the sprocket carrier bearing. It fits; haven't had a chance to mount it on the bike yet and roll it around. If you're replacing that bearing, you should think about using the money I just saved you to grab the rear spacer from @richlandrick ! :-)

Thank you for the responses.

Yarz1: I'd not heard of Pivotworks before. Was the sprocket carrier bearing they supplied single or double sealed?

RichlandRick: I'll check out Ranch and Home. I've often found ag supply shops have the best assortment of metric fasteners, maybe they'll have bearings too.

MAZ4ME: If the Suzuki bearing was double sealed I'd go with it. The single seal is why I want to replace the bearing. The gap between the unsealed side of the bearing and the dirt shield they call a seal lets in grit. I like gravel and dirt on this beast. Yes, I keep the void between the bearing and the dirt shield packed with grease, still, it lets in grit. I'll fix my info so the year of the bike is evident. Good guess, it's a 2006.

Demache: Was the NSK bearing double sealed? I'll see if I can find their website. That's pretty good service from afar.


WildDoktor: Is your $8.00 bearing double sealed? First thing I did after I bought the bike was purchase RichlandRick's spacer kit and mirror extenders. Both work very well. I am disappointed though that when I finally get a Vstrom RichlandRick has moved his business from just down the street to the other side of the USA.

Deicer crews were out in force, looks like another round of snow, sleet, and freezing rain rolling in tonight. If no work tomorrow (I drive school bus) it'll be a good time to get the bearing ordered.

Thanks again for your input!

Yep; it is the 62/32-2RS bearing that @greywolf (RIP) suggested here. 2RS=2 rubber seals.

I doubt Ranch and Home will have a double sealed bearing, but they might. I got mine in Pasco at one of the agricultural equipment companies, but there are three bearing supply stores there as well.
