    xt 760 crank spindle spins-not the O.B. bearing.

    Repair/Replace the bearing?

    Can you spin the bearing with the cranks pulled out?

    Been there. 03 NRS AIR.

    A couple of years ago I pulled it apart and managed to get it turning again. Cleaned it up, and put it back on. It worked for a while. Then seized up again. I got a new set after riding home with the crank axle spinning in the bearing.

    It's the water on the inside of the bike that did mine in. It gets in through the seatpost, and steering tube. Then it gets into the bottom bracket area.
