don't know the size..but you can look the bearings up on bikebandit.com, or ebay..just go to ebay..type in your make and model..and it will show you all kinds and prices of them.

And I would replace the bearings as soon as possible. If you ride with them bad for too long, it can wallow out the hubs and the new bearings won't fit tight and if this happens, you will have to have new hubs.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

unless they have a snap ring holding the bearings in the steering knuckle ??..just about anyway you can knock the old/new bearings in/out..will work..some knuckles..like on the trx300's..have snap rings under the dust seal..this keeps the bearing from comming out..soooo...make sure when you remove the dust seals..that you don't have..or didn't have any snap rings ?.

yes..if you do not mess up the seals ( and this is where bearing grease does wonders ! )..you can re-use them. as for not having a press..neither do i !..lol..a large socket..a good hammer...( brass hammer if you have one ? )..works great ..if you don't have a brass hammer..just use a large enough socket to hit the bearing fairly even and square !..you don't wanna get it going back in crooked !..make sure to grease not only the bearing..but also the steering knuckle where it goes in.
