I would guess that for 13$ you get chinese bearings?

I don't believe you will find that price for a domestic or european mfg.

:D Quality really, chineese bearings are not as "Good" as others,

this must be one of the few things cheaper "Over here" then "Over there", I just replaced my front wheel bearings with SKF 2RS and paid £17 for the pair :)

so what did you use chinese ones or another countries. I was figuring what ever country they come from there had to be a standard?

:) SKF are european and are top notch, I use them in all my bikes with no trouble,

I had a Honda CRM 2 stroke before the WR which was notoriosly hard on wheel bearings, I had to replace them in a hurry and could only get cheap ones, they only lasted two months before needing replacing again :D I did it properly the 2nd time with SKF ones and they are still in it now!

As to standards, well yes , but all Gold sticker helmets are the same standard, but I would rather wear an Arai than a cheap and cheerful make :D

When you do yours make sure you get the "2RS" variety, this is 2 Rubber Seals, cos you can get single seal ones, The bearings are as good but they get alot more water/grit etc into them

I just replaced mine and had the old ones in my toolchest in the box from the new ones.

The skf double sealed are pricey though.

35$ each!

the bearings that i got were european made. They were water sealed. Any way the guys at motion sports use the hell out of these bearings s they probably get a great deal on them. The ones that were in there were the stock ones. Not bad for cheap chinese non sealed bearings.
