Where can I purchase replacement bearings?

I was about to check my 05 wr
but the manual says it does not require maintenace
the bearings are sealed
anyone else read this?
Lies!!! Take it apart and you'll see what they mean by "sealed". There's this viscoelastic stuff in there that is packed around the needle bearing, and it's supposed to never need greasing...pure crap! It's supposed to be the same way in the shock linkage...more BS. In my '05, I had a combination of both viscoelastic and free needle bearing packed in grease, very little grease. Get yourself a dental pick and get all that crap out of there. Save the bearings, get some good waterproof grease, Bel-Ray worked well for me, and repack everything. Your linkage and swingarm will thank you...SC
