Got the Shimmies

I took a trip recently and noticed the front end shimmy at 40-50 mph. Today I ordered some 1800C front wheel bearings to correct the problem. Do the rear bearings need replacing also? Just in case I'll replace the rear bearings when I get new Avon Venoms in the near future.

Rich, I've got 6,000 miles so far, and I'm getting my bike ready for a trip to BiketoberFest in Daytona Beach in 2 weeks. I haven't heard any rubbing or unusual noises in the rear so far. As you say, at minimum I'll have the bearings checked when I install the tires.
Crap! I ordered the wrong bearings!!!
Thanks for the part numbers, CD!
