took the cousin and his Harley to Deal's Gap for his first ever ride in the mountains, his brand new Harley smoked the front wheel bearings with only 9K on it !! The very next day, en route back to MS, the front wheel bearings on my V2K with some 74,000 miles on them likewise roasted.
Barely made it to the Kaw dealer in Pelham,AL, who fixed it while WE WAITED !

I didn't get that many miles out of my OEM bearings when they crapped out, but I was close to home and a creative bearing store. It is now part of my yearly maintenance to replace all the wheel bearings end to end, including the two in the drive hub. You have to buy the OEM bearing remover for the front bearings but it is money well spent.
