Cleaning sand from bearing - April 14, 2015, 10:49 AM

I managed to get CMP sand into the bearing on m sprocket carrier this weekend. What is the best way to clean it out...or am I stuck buying a new bearing?

I am thinking anything that you would do that would would remove all the grease endless you had something like this

They also make ones you can stand on and spin. With that type of force you might get it all out.


Yeah I am old enough to know better. Thing is, I just don't care.

Might not be worth the trouble.

Note to sell, buy outdoor carpet.

Where can I buy just the one bearing without having to buy a rear wheel kit? The other bearings are good.

Pull the bearing and/or get the numbers off it and stop into one of the big industrial supply shops, or even a NAPA store. They should be able to fix you up.

... Ad yeah. I'd def replace it. The cost if it fails after a attempt at cleaning the grit out could be very high.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Not home to look at the wheel...

Bike Bandit has "601: BEARING-BALL,#6006G" listed for that bearing. Is #6006G what I need to ask for at the supply shops?
