    Default Rear wheel bearings

    The F3 has 2 of the 6205 bearings. Are the RT's the same? BRP lists different part numbers but I suspect they are the same.

    No...thats not it. My F3 had oem made in china bearings. I replaced them with NTN Bearing 6205ZZC3/EM Single Row Deep Groove Radial Ball Bearing, Electric Motor Quality. This 100% fixed the gear whine type noise that some are complaining about between 40-50mph (70-80kmph). I dont have an RT but have friends who are complaining of the same issue and want to know if they can use the same without taking wheel apart first. It is a more expensive bearing but is US made, quiet running and a lot more quality.

    All rear wheels 2008 to 2019, models GS, RS, ST, RT, F3 all use the same wheel bearings and seals. Even if BRPs part numbers change over time.

    True. Many times the only difference in a BRP part # change is the supplier. I suppose quality might also be a factor. But the point being, the specs. are the same and the parts completely interchangeable. It is a mistake to assume that if the part # changes, the new will not interchange or be a replacement for the old.

    A little background would be nice. More torque, less torque? My spec is 155 to 177 Lb/Ft of torque. I tend to go on the lower end.

    Hey, I looked up that part number, it's a sheilded bearing, and I believe the Spyder uses double sealed. Is that correct?
