You must have had yours way to tight if you regreased your bearings when you bought the bike, and they are shot after 1 1/2 months.
I have a 00' yz426f, and have just greased mine this year for the first time, and they are fine. The swingarm bearings just had a little wear, nothing major. And I know I was very lucky to get away with this.

Maybe your new bearings were so smooth you could not feel the extra tightness so thats why you ran it like that?
