Hi all, A recent experience with naff chinese wheel bearings in a mates GSXR started me selling decent quality bearings. I am now able to source front wheel, rear wheel, sprocket carrier, steering head bearings and (some) crank bearings for most bikes, and am obviously trying to build business a little.
You can, of course find cheapo bearings for 2 or 3 quid each, or you could go to the dealers and pay £35+
My bearings are supplied from decent manufacturers (NSK, NTN etc) and are of comparable quality (or better) than OEM, and for front wheel bearings are priced at around £13 per pair, with discounts for group buying, combined postage etc.
I can offer forum members a small discount on any bearing set sale, but buy more and save more!
As a last word, whoever you buy bearings from, please, please don’t get the cheapest you can find. my mate paid £5.99 for a pair of front wheel bearings and now has a wrecked bike and a broken leg for his efforts. Sradical
