"sealed wheel bearings for atlas"


  

          

I am pulling and cleaning the wheel bearings on my Atlas and was curious if anyone was aware of any replacement sealed bearings. I replaced the originals on my Triumph but haven't seen any posts on sealed ones for the Tlas.

Thanks

Dave

I'm not sure why you haven't easily found many posts on this ever reocurring topic.
Here goes:
The single row bearing IS available as a sealed bearing.

The double row is NOT available as a sealed bearing.

Only a "wider" double row sealed bearing is available and it requires custom machining of the hub and associated components to fit it.
Some think this is THE super dupper set up....

I think one should look at the wheel bearings more often than every 1/4 century and one would find the original bearings will do just fine.
