SLX 150HG Drive Shaft Bushing to Bearing Replacement

Postby carter » Tue Nov 06, 2018 3:00 pm

Bantam,

Do you know if there is a Shimano bearing that will replace the bushing below the drive shaft?

I tried part BNT4194, but it is too tall to fit. It seems like the bushing and slot has a slight taper that keeps the bearing from fulling seating.

Thanks in advance!

I have not tried to do a swap yet. I do not have access to an SLX at the moment to check. If the bushing is tapered, then a bearing may not work.

Gotcha. It does appear to have a taper, so maybe a bearing replacement is just not in the cards. Thanks for the reply.

Oh no, I got SLX and hope to switch bearing on those mainshaft and pinion gear support.

The bushing will be fine for the drive shaft. The shaft is still supported by the anti reverse bearing which will keep it from moving under a load.
