Do you know where this should be at?
« on: September 29, 2019, 10:09:36 am »
Hey guys!
During my last ride my brakes made a lot of noise and decided it was time for a deep cleaning-lubrication service, I even took the rotors out to perform a real good cleaning job. All went really nice, even painted some pieces of hardware and all; changed the brake oil, fully purged the lines and at re-assembly, I ended up with these bearings  :-[

I remember taking them out, but for the love of God, I can't remember where from  :-\

Does anybody know where they belong to?

Thanks in advance...

They appear to be the inserts which are on the front rotors and the bolts go thru them.

I must apologize and disclose that mine is a 2012 abs model.
Sorry guys... I just re-read the posting guidelines

I don't think that is correct. However, it's not because of any special knowledge on my part, but rather for two reasons 1) the parts diagram doesn't show them there; 2) I can't determine what purpose they would serve there. At first I thought the same thing just because the number (7) was right, however I checked some of the photographs I have of my bike and those holes were empty. Are you absolutely sure they were left over from your C14?...and are they really bearings or more like spacers of some sort. If they are bearings, because of the large chamfers on the outside corners, they almost look like they are from some sort of track system. Obviously too small for a garage door track but perhaps from something similar? Metal filing cabinet? Have you disassembled any fidget spinners lately?  ;D ;D

I'm standing by on this..because I'm curious just what the heck those are.   :)

Man!
I’ve reached the point in which I can’t remember what I did a few days ago, and I’m only 57
  :o
I normally make pictures of my disassembling process but this time (as it happens) I did NOT!
Thanks a bunch @fartmarty for looking it up on your pics.
I now am sure they don’t belong in the rear wheel  ;)
Problem is that the only project I’ve been working on for the last week is my Connie, and very happily, until these pieces came out at the end of the work!
I’ll keep on looking and let you guys know what I’ve done wrong.

it really would help a lot, if you described in detail, exactly what you removed and did, before re assembling....

but looking at that photo of the parts, and looking thru the microfiche, and also having removed a bunch of parts and reassembling them from my C14 in the last 12 years... I have to say I have never seen 7 parts, of that nature, anywhere on this bike...

Did you have your front rotors off?  If so and you only have 7 of these extra parts, maybe one rotor has them and the other doesnt.

seriously, they aren't part of the rotor. ::) ::) ::)

do you own a C14?  If so, go look at your front rotors... if not, you really aren't helping him by saying these things.

Before anyone posted anything, I had already looked at photos, thinking "where in the world could those possibly go- especially such a strange number (7)?"  I decided to stay silent and see where this went, because there shouldn't be any small bearings like that.  Brakes don't have bearings, and the front wheel has just the large/main bearings....

Thanks maxtog,
I was waiting for your input, you are right in fact it is the rear wheel that the fiche shows, and 7 is exactly the number of wholes on the circular plate held on top of the hub dampers that once installed, faces the surface of the body of the shaft. It really puzzles me!

I’ve spent hours going through the service manual and can’t find these bearings anywhere; I am now thinking that perhaps the manual is an older version, since it was printed in June 2007, and I was hoping that someone with a 2012 model would be able to identify them, but MAN OF BLUES has already covered that.

I serviced both wheels, but seven is the exact number of wholes on the hub of the rear wheel, as shown in the fiche

The early and late models aren't that different mechanically. I had one of each pretty much disassembled recently and I cannot remember seeing a part like that - much less seven of them.
In fact, I've looked in the bin that contains the leftovers of the one that didn't go back together and I still can't find a part that looks like that.
