Make sure you adjust your bearings to place minimal stress on the shaft between the kick wheel and the wheel head. New bearing assemblies usually fit snugly enough that you just have to make sure you're not tweaking the assembly when you tighten down the bolts. This will prolong the life of not only the bearings, but the shaft as well.
