Hi all , I need to service my front DT SWISS 350 hub . Can someone tell me how to do it or point me to a service vid . Ive looked at the DT sight and the service makes no cense . A vid would be way better . Cheers , Damo
Correct. Cost me $22 for a couple of high quality Japanese sealed bearings to refurbish my sons 340 front hub (20mm axle - and about 10 minutes of my time).Silly Q, but what's to 'service' on a sealed bearing front hub? Do you mean bearing removal and replacement?
Correct.I haven't done mine for a while as I'm running a couple of pairs of hope wheels now, DT are on the spare, spare bike and the wife's bike, hehe...
From memory, just pull the cups out, drift the bearings out and press some new ones in. Unless it's an O/S front hub they'll be 6902 bearings ( also from memory, google it ) I made a press on the lathe for 6902s but you'll be able to gently tap them home with a socket, don't load up the centre of the bearing when driving them in, only the outside edge.
A brand new wheel's cups or freshly greased and installed cups will pull out with your fingers but they are pretty hard to pull out after a bit of use. I made an axle clamp for the vice on the lathe / mill, 19mm I think for 15mm front hub?? You could use pliers and a rag to avoid scratching the ano otherwise?
Good luck with it.....
