Rear Wheel Bearings

I noticed a tiny bit of side-to-side in my rear wheel last time I cleaned the chain. Maybe time for new bearings...

Any specific brand recommended, or should I just go OEM? Will these: REAR WHEEL Bearing Kit HONDA CB 900 F (919) 2002-07:eBay Motors (item 390100968480 end time Oct-31-09 12:36:15 PDT) [ebay.com] end up disintegrating at 100mph taking my rear axle with them?

I replaced mine at around 24K. Noticed some rust coming out of the left side bearing at my last tire change and a lil noise.

I got mine from All Balls Racing site but exactly the same and the e-bay price is a lil less. I have also bought from that seller on e-bay and got excellent service.

Good luck!

I've used All Balls before, but was told they are cheap chinese crap, not sure if that is true or not.

$31.34 retail, your local dealer should match that eBay price or $26.65 is 15% off, that is what I sell them for, plus shipping.

Pivot Works was suggested to me as a better option, but I'm not sure those are not chinese as well.

If you can get the number off of your old ones, many times a local bearing house will have good quality replacements on hand.

You could also go ahead and get some ceramic replacements, only several hundred bucks, what's money anyway?

IMO All Balls is a good source.
