Hiya'

I went around all 4 tyres last night and pushed them rhythmically to see if I could see, hear or feel any freeplay and one front wheel is a tiny bit suspect. If I rock it hard enough can hear a little clicking sound (possibly the lock washer on two 52mm bolts? thats what it sounds like, kinda thin metal sound) and also feel a tiiny bit of freeplay.

Would you remove this wheel and retighten/repack bearing?
Thanks

Thanks Spike, I'll do it tomorrow, along with the oil gasket, crank seal, oil change, and dizzy O-ring. Will report back, hopefully with some pics, depending how I feel and how greasy my hands are.

Yea mate!

Took it the other day out in my local area, we were hit with cyclone 'Carlos' a few weeks ago and have had the mopst rain EVER so it's very wet out and all tracks have some really boggy areas.
