    old heckler bearings

    what are the bearings the old heckler uses?
    i found somewhere that its 1614. can someone confirm that?
    i dont want to pull them out, and go with them to the bearing shop. better to have the new ones before i get to business.
    thanks

    cant speak to the correct designation for the "Old Heckler" bearings, but I can tell you that without buying new bearings you can breathe new life into the old ones. The seals can be removed from them such that you can clean out all the gunk with a good solvent. Repack and reinstall the seals and you are off without having to buy new ones.

    there is no play in the bearings, so i know i dont have to change them. but i just changed the bearings of the 20 mm hub, and enjoyed it a lot. so i thought, why the hell not, lets do the heckler too.

    yeh, guys, thanks for all the great responses, really. i just want to do it myself, with fraction of the cost it would take with the sc kit.

    R8RS (or R82RS if you want) same as the old Bullit. I'm pretty damn sure I used the same bearings on both bikes.
