OK, I checked with the local Harley shop. They have the bearings and it would be covered under warranty because the bike is less than 2 years old (per service manager). How long would it take if I brought the bike down there today? My concern is that I'm leaving on a three week tour this coming Thursday. Ummm, I might be able to have the bike back to you by then. OK, I'll just buy the bearings and do it myself at my expense. Will it void the warranty if I replace them myself? No, it shouldn't.
I drive to the Harley shop. 2016 RGU front wheel bearings. Parts guy looks in the book, goes to the back and comes back out with three boxes. I say, "Three bearings?" Yeah, book shows three bearings. That's odd, I thought it only needed two, an ABS sensor bearing and a standard. I rely on his expertise and buy the three. I get home and look in my book again. Yep, shows three bearings; a standard bearing on the right side of the wheel and an ABS OR a standard bearing on the left.
Some folks wonder why I have it in for dealers.
Yeah, I called the store manager and told him about it. Not that the extra bearing broke my bank, but just the consistent wrong support from these guys.
