Yep looks complicated. Maybe one bearing for axial load and the other for radial load? Never seen it before though.

Or maybe they just stuffed things in there to make up the space Rolling Eyes Laughing

Looks like what it is....someones cobbled something together to try to get the short needle roller bearings to work.....

PDF spares brochure shows how it should be

Needle roller bearing...one on each side....dust cover and a bush a sleeve and a shaft

That bearing is for the VDue race swingarm so it could be a later use / version. Youd need to check the overall sizes to if it would fit

I must have the later swing arm then - bearings on their way.
Great info, as always, Boris - thanks.
