    Wheel Bearings

    The front wheel bearings went bad at 20K miles and now the rear wheel bearings are bad at 21K.
    I ride all year and put them through hell but that is a short life span in my opinion.

    What symptoms/noises did you notice leading up to the bearing failures? I noticed that on my 2018, the drive belt is as tight as a guitar sting. I also noticed yesterday that my bike makes a constant squeaking/whooshing sound when riding at slow speeds or coming to stop. I was thinking about adjusting the drive belt tension to see if that helps. My bike has 2K miles btw.

    My Harley dealer replaced my front and rear wheel bearings at 12,500 miles. I have owned six Harleys and never had to replace them this early.
