Hello,

Does anyone know the size of the bearing on the top of the pinion gear on Shimano's Sienna 2500FB and/or Alivio 2500FA please?

I am also thinking of replacing the main gear bushes with bearings, as they are a bit sloppy, though it is not practical at the manufacturer's RRP, any tips as to supply/size would be well appreciated.

Thanks.

Try going to Alan Tani's website/forum and asking your question.

G'day Benny,

Get yourself a set of digital calipers. I got a set from an auto shop for about $20. I use them all the time to measure bearings and drag washers... then you can order whatever bearings you need, whenever you need them.


Cheers, Slinky
