Default Brake side bearing on a CFR???

My 2010 cfr 8 has exactly 4500 miles on it, 139.6 hrs, and im wondering when the brake side drieshaft bearing needs changing. Ive got a brand new diamond drive in it as of last year, its got about 1500 miles on it. Ive got the sled for sale cause Ive got a 14 800rr waiting for me, providing i sell this sled. If it dont sell ill be riding it one more winter, and have never kept a sled over the 4000 mile mark. Is it needed, preventative, or generally do they last longer? Just wondering before i do the job

I average 1500 miles a year, so if i keep it it will have approx 6000 at season end, fyi


thanks

Never can tell. IMO,if you're thinking about it, you might as well do it. Gearcase, skid and shaft back out.

Mine blew out at about 5000 miles. There is two in there and personally to be safe I would do them.

I decided to do the job and change them, pretty straight forward on getting it all disassembled. Both bearings in the brake housing are abit rough, was just a matter of time by the looks of them! Bought two good quality aftermarket ones from a bearing place in town, abit more cash but a lot better quality bearing. Now the sled will be ready to ride, for me or the new owner!!
