I dont 'get' the point of staking bearing retainers
« on: Jul 03, 2019, 17:30:24 »
the retainers are torqued into place and then have torqued pressure from a spacer in the tightened axle...how does staking help

It stops the retaining ring from unscrewing itself.  Torquing it applies teh correct ned loading, but I would guess that Honda decided that was not enough to stop them from coming loose.

Because Honda designed a stupid hub with only one seat for the bearing on one side of it.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

I doubt it needs quite the aggresive staking that I've run into on Hondas. But, luckily it drills out easy.
