    Welcome to the forum!
    I did mine on the F800GS a while back, here is the link here-

    The bearings are easily crossed for a local purchase.

    Receipt says 5 sealed bearings, 62042RS, sized 30x47x7, and one (for the front) at 25x47x7, and 4 seals (3 at 30x57x7, one at 25x47x7).
    Seals happened to be Timkin, the bearings were ZVL, a Slovakian made bearing. I had been told to use eastern Euro bearings, NOT Chinese!
    total price for 5 bearings and 4 seals was $60.

    OEM original front bearings are still good at 35K.

    Here's what I used in the rear



    Added a bit more grease as most are shipped with very little.



    The front bearings seem to last far longer than the rear...less weight, stress and general abuse I assume.

    And stick to Japanese or European made. Most good bearing shops will have what you need!

    Welcome to the forum! Kinda scary how little grease is in a sealed bearing. I haven't done the fronts yet but a wheel-on check seems good. I bought all 5 bearings and seals + 1 extra of each for around $100.00

    Thanks! Finally decided to join here...

    Just got the Anonymous book, I had no idea it was the resource that it is

    I was surprized as well at the lack of grease. I ended up getting the bearings for about $15 each. Have yet to touch the fronts other than to check. I end up checking the rear set at least twice a year and every time I take the rear tire off.
