Are scooter bearings all the same size?
Most wheels on pro scooters have a diameter of 100 mm or 110 mm. However, some wheels can have a diameter of up to 125 mm. The diameter of a wheel determines the properties of a wheel in terms of its ability to ride over uneven surfaces.
What size are scooter wheel bearings?
Most bearings have an outer diameter of 22 mm and an axle diameter of 8 mm = type 608.
Can you replace bearings on scooter wheels?
Scooter wheels are geared with a metal core which make it harder to install the bearings in the wheel since the metal does not flex at all. Therefore, when you are to install or remove the bearings in your scooter wheels with metal core, you will be needing some tools.
Are skateboard bearings the same as scooter bearings?
Q: Are scooter bearings the same as skateboard bearings? Yes. The bearings you find on a scooter are the same size as those found on a skateboard. For most of the bearings sets we have discussed above, the manufacturers recommend them for application on skateboards, inline skates, and scooters.
What does ABEC 7 bearings mean?
The ABEC rating system includes grades 1,3,5,7, and 9. The higher the ABEC rating, the tighter the tolerances are, making the bearing a more precision part. High precision and small tolerances are required for bearings to function at very high RPM, in products like high speed routers that must spin at 20 to 30,000 RPM.
How do you pop the bearings on a scooter?
Insert your T-handle allen key, which should be roughly the size of an axle bolt, into the bearing hole so that it catches on to the bearing spacer. From there, hammer the allen key against the bearing spacer, which should pop one of the bearings out of the scooter wheel.
Are skateboard bearings universal?
Regardless of wheel size, all skateboard bearings are the same size and will fit any skateboard wheel that Warehouse Skateboards sells. The universal measurements for bearings are 8mm (core), 22mm (outer diameter), and 7mm (width).
Which ABEC is best?
Specifically, thanks to its smaller runout and axial play, an ABEC 7 bearing will perform better and last longer in high speed applications, than an ABEC 3 rated bearing. So, if you need a super precise, long-lasting bearing, ABEC 7 is probably the bearing for you.
