Wheel Bearings and E-bay, aaargh...

5 posts in this topic

Well, I just replaced my second set of wheel bearings in less than 6 months. I bought both sets from reputable E-bay dealer "ATV Unlimited". They have a good seller rating and advertise the bearings as being double sealed and heavy duty. Bulls :ride: t!!! I am going back to Pivot Works for good, $14.00 wheel bearing sets ARE to good to be true.

I'm not an idiot or a newb, I know how to install bearings and my hubs are in impecable shape. All I can think is these things are made in china out of recycled materials probably old volkswagen fenders or something :banana:

Just a warning to those of you considering these bearings.

I just got some ALLBALLZ for my son's RM and they were priced pretty good, anyone have luck with these?

I can't imagine there being too many different bearing producers out there but I have a sense that there are differences in raw materials and production techniques.....

It's a lot cheaper and easier to just go to the local bearing jobber and buy top quality, in town. No shipping, you get them right now and you can usually choose between 3-4 brands...I never buy bearings from the dealer, or ebay, too expensive, in more ways than one!

This is true. A lot of the time they can match OEM brand. The double sealed ones are great. The other thing I do is pop one seal off and pack some extra grease inside and pop the seal back on. :ride:
