Your UK MOT seems to be very harsh! Much less strict here in Australia, at least in New South Wales.

I don't know how specialised a front wheel bearing is but not to far from us is
https://www.solent-bearings.co.uk/ and if memory serves me well the owner had or has a tourer
looking at rimmers web site the bearing is not specialised and could probably be bought of the shelf.


Does anyone know the reference on the side of the front wheel bearing?

The front wheel bearing contains the magnet for the abs sensor, its a one piece sealed unit, no need to go to a bearing supplier, Rimmers stock them.

Part no RUD100151 just over £40 for the genuine part, aftermarket comes in at £39

I believe the magnets are only inserted in one end of the bearing. And they are not marked!
It is important to establish which end contains the magnets and install that closest to the ABS sensor.

Use a small piece of steel like a paper clip to find the magnetic end!

Don't need to do that Guido

There are two types of seal, one is steel, the other rubber, the rubber one contains the magnetic reluctor, and is fitted closest to the ABS sensor
