The top roller bearing (very top of the door) is missing on my '85 Westy (La Tortuga). I'd like to order another one, but I'm not sure of the dimensions. The spindle would hold a bearing with the inner dimension of 9mm, but I no longer have one to measure. Anyone able to measure their roller? I need the outer diameter and the thickness.

I've searched the forums. Most of the talk on here is about the middle bearings. Pretty cool that skateboard bearing fit, but that is not the case for the top bearing.

Thanks!

Doug

If you can measure your bottom one then you should have the answer.

GW says they are the same for top and bottom.
