I have just picked up my father in laws bike off him which is a '01 I-Drive.. Only problem is the I-drive bearings are shot.. The back end slaps about more than you'd believe...! Can you get replacement bearings for it? Who/where would be best for that..??? And is it worth doing..??? The rest of the bike is really good and he has done a LOT of miles on it... He gave up looking for new bits and bought a newer model..... :0) cheers for any help...

They used to pop up on ebay, more so in the US.

Was wroking on an xcr 4000 today in fact. Was a nightmare - not looked after.
Make sure its not play in the main pivot/dogbone also as there a bit harder to source although i think betd do stuff for them but cost you an arm and a leg.
