Do you use a pressure washer ?

Got the bike back allready, it's insane they showed me the right bearing 4 balls were into shreds, the left one was as new…
The mechanic asked Honda for a warranty repair, crossing my fingers and hope the new bearings are a better batch !
The bearings are few euro each, I didn't bother to claim warranty as they are wearing parts anyway. You can always carry set of bearings with you, they are not expensive or heavy.

SB, this has nothing to do with water, or washing bike. Just a batch of bad bearings as there was a batch of bad spokes too I assume.

A friend of mine is doing a around the world trip on his AT. He's been at it for two years and has some experience with the rear wheel bearing.

Apologies if I am not permitted to link to another forum, but this is the easiest way to show what he has done.
The link is https://advrider.com/f/threads/rtw-on-a-h-a-t-in-the-slow-lane.1172713/page-37#post-34378895
That was some time ago when he fitted this bearing and I spoke with him recently and he says it is doing a good job. Prior to this he replaced his rear bearing twice.
