    Ti Lite castor fork bearings

    Are the bearings in the castor fork pretty much a standard size? My right one is going & I'm wondering if it will take awhile to get the parts in or are they something that is "off the shelf"?

    Here is a pic for you can see how to do it, the measurements are:
    inside diameter X outsite diameter x width

    You also need to know the inside (hole) diameter.

    Am I correct in thinking that you are talking about the bearing at the top of the fork, the one that lets the caster swivel? That is usually a different size than the caster bearing, the one that lets the wheel roll. The skateboard bearings are usually the size that fits the caster bearing.

    Yes, we are talking about the casters of the forks, they are different than the casters bearing, the pic i show are casters bearing, but i put it only for you can see how to get the measurements of a bearing, and yes, you also need to know the inside hole.

    In quickie the fork casters are 12mm x 28mm x 8mm http://www.vxb.com/page/bearings/PROD/Kit682 probably Tilites use the
    same, but i`m not sure, and you will need two caster each fork.

    Yes it's the one that lets it swivel, the actual castor bearings are fine.
