919 Rear wheel bearings

I ordered Honda OEM bearings for the rear wheel and hub. The aftermarket bearings that the previous owner had installed were falling apart. After market bearing are junk. Anyways... Instead of buying the OEM bearings like I did I will post the Brand and model number of the bearings that Honda uses.

Here they are..

Rear wheel quantity- 2 NSK 6204DU 20X47X14 sealed ball bearings

Rear Hub quantity-1 NTN SC04866LU (could not find the measurement)

Aftermarket Koyo bearings are just fine. Many of us have used them with little problem - Koyo supplies Honda and sometimes you'll get Koyo in the little Honda bags if you buy the bearings from Honda. Chinese bearings, not so much.

All balls might be Chinese metal but Koyo is definitely a reputable Japanese brand and make. You can find then on Ebay cheaper than a Honda kit, I think in the same range as the all balls

I think what was in it, was the ALL Balls. It says something else on the bearing (not All Balls). What I am saying is I think the bearings that I took out of the wheel, had come in an All Balls package. I will take some pictures of what I took out and post them.

If Koyo does come in the Honda packages, then I would consider them to be OEM.

Dangerous route that I wouldn't take. Saving a few bucks and getting fake crap that has unknown quality control. IMO these items are too crucial for safety to take your chances. You won't believe how huge counterfeit bearing market is, thanks to China and India. Yes, fake bearing will have all correct stamping too: "SKF, Koyo, Japan, Germany etc" and come in legit looking box.

Spend a few extra bucks, and get Honda bearings that come with Honda part number on the package. The only way to make sure you are getting legit thing short of going to the authorized SKF, Koyo, NSK, Timken, FAG distributor. Trip to any authorized dealer of the above will quickly show you that Honda bearings are actually come at very discounted price. Also Honda moto market is not big enough to keep serious counterfeiters interested in faking Honda OEM packaging etc. Plus dealer gets them from trusted sources as well
Industry has all kinds of associations established strictly to fight black market crap.

one example:
Anti-counterfeiting

Just google "counterfeit bearings" for more info..

Boss Bearings sells on the Internet and on EBay and has been verified as selling genuine Koyo and Nachi bearings and seals. Their merchandise has been checked by several people and they're authorized Koyo and Nachi distributors. Pretty sure you're getting what you ordered when you buy from them.

Oh, yeah - Boss Bearings is not to be confused with Quad Boss. The former sells genuine quality bearings, the latter is the same kind of Chinese crap as All Balls.
