Not sure if the Gen1 has a needle bearing in the rear wheel. Pretty sure it does. I'll check if it's in good shape and go from there. Possibly replace it

Yep, Gen I has a needle bearing closer to the left side.

Just received the bearing kit from Pivot Works. Wouldn't have bought it but all similar sets are at least $80 from either yamaha or any other manufacturer. Found this kit on Amazon for $13. It was the last one at that price. I'll try them, we'll see how they work.

ok just started working on it and that needle roller bearing is a royal PITA to get out. You cannot use a punch to drive it out. I read that some people use a dremel to cut it in half and then get it out. What worked for me was renting a slide hammer bearing remover from AutoZone. The three prongs went perfectly behind the bearing and I was able to remove it cleanly. Next time, I'm just going to rent one of those and not worry about using a punch and possibly damaging my wheel.

Putting this here in case someone is looking for how to remove that bearing on their rear wheel. There isn't much info online on how to go about it

Bingo. A socket the same size as the bearing then makes a perfect drift for getting the new one in.
