I Want to install 1” wheel spacers on my grizzly 550 but I have heard that spacers cause the wheel bearings to prematurely wear, any truth?

Problems with spacers generally happen with the larger 1.5 and 2" spacers. 1" won't be a problem

Case and point my old 550 has been run hard with 1" billet style spacers for over 14 000 kms....

Ok thanks, it seems the positive attributes out weight the possible negative ones. Any ”must do’s” for the install?

Retorque your spacers after the first ride
