Hi all, can anyone tell me how this cup is retained? I don’t want to get too rough but at the moment it doesn’t want to budge ( I assume it’s removable otherwise how can you fit the bearing?). I assume there’s a felt seal assembly and a spacer in there but as with most late FB models the handbook/spares book doesn’t show the ‘non-speedo drive’ rear hub.

It is just a press fit, if you drift the spindle out from the opposite end it will most likely come off with the spindle and bearing, but if you do not want to risk it a kettle of boiling water over it may expand it enough to loosen it ?

Thanks John. I tried the kettle, then a hot air gun but it’s not budging. As this is a preservation job and the bearings feel ok I’m not going to change them. They have previously been changed unless FB fitted ‘made in USSR ‘ ones at the front and ‘made in Japan’ at the back... I wanted to remove the cup to regrease the offside as I have with the near side but the cup is starting to deform and bind on the spacer so I’ll leave it for now. I’ll try your first method if I ever have cause to change the bearing.

Steve.

Personally i fit the 2RS bearings with the rubber shields, then greasing is a thing of the past, and the liklihood of getting grease into the brake drum is practically nil.
The bearings are usually less than a fiver each
