Hello,

Has anyone else had an Axle Bearing failure? I have a 3 month old Zinger 26RL and the outer bearing (streetside) of one of the axles failed. It was covered under warranty, however, I'm wondering if this was an isolated incident.



Thank-you

There were a few posts a couple years back that stated people found very little grease on the bearings just after purchase. It got a lot of us checking ours and doing a re-pack. You might check the rest of yours to be safe. It could also have been a loose spindle nut.

Could be a fluke, lack of lubricant, or mis-assembly. Mine traveled 1K miles to be delivered. The dealer re-packs bearings as part of the PDI and adjusts the brakes. All of this is suppose to be done very early on.

When I received my Cruiser I was having brake problems. When I removed the drums I found two that had damaged grease seals that probably occured during factory assembly. Had to replace two brake assemblies due to the brake shoes saturated with grease.
