What are the exact wheel bearing sizes for 2006 & 2007 Wees? We are in Russia and they're going out. It's Thursday night now and we need to find some in a bearing shop tomorrow AM. Need inside & outside diameters and width info ASAP. Thanx, Larry
The 2006 front takes two 6203 bearings. (17m ID X 40mm OD X 12mm thick)
The rear takes two 6204 bearings (20X47X14) in the wheel and one 32X65X17 in the sprocket carrier (this is often designated a 62/32 bearing).
For all, you'll want sealed bearings, with the -2RS suffix.
From the factory, there are seals over the bearings that usually get damaged when you remove them. These aren't totally essential if you get sealed bearings, but the bearings will last longer if you get a kit and replace the seals at the same time.
On an online fiche that uses real part numbers, you can usually see the bearing designation buried in the Suzuki part number, or the measurements will be in the description. For example: BEARING 08133-62037
Look closely at the bearings they offer you. There are junky counterfeits available in 3rd world countries, and sometimes in major countries. The box should be decent printing on good cardboard, and the bearing should look well made, not like it was out of a (good) home shop. There must be good Russian brands, plus any Japanese or European brands. SKF brand is world-wide and top quality, and good bearings are made in many countries under many brand names -- I've used dozens of SNC Italian ball bearings with great results, as well as many other brands.
The double sealed -2RS bearings mentioned above are pre-lubricated with long-life grease. Put them in and you're good. (2RS means two resilient seals.)
