I'm also using the all balls kit, but only about 7K on them. The OEM bearing lasted 37K, but they probably cost a lot more.

my 2 cents, just don't use bearings made in China. I've had bad luck, USA if you can find them, worth the cost.

I hear the All Balls brand is the way to go. This summer i think Shmoo replaced his OEM and he was at 70k.

I used the "All-Balls" when I replaced my rear wheel bearings. I've had no issues at all.

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

OEM or All Balls are both recommended - either kit can be found for $25-30 USD. When I built my bike I replaced all the bearings with All Balls and have no complaints at all.

not saying all balls bearings are bad . But All Balls doesn't actually manufacture any bearings, they simply just a repackager. Sadly 99.9% of them made in China, just like 99% of other aftermarket bearings hence affordable to the consumer. There is absolutely nothing special about All Balls except they come with cool stickers.


That's why I prefer OEM. You can also get the number of the bearing and look around for US, Japan or German equivalent as almost all bearings made universal.

919 rear wheel takes two 6204 bearings, Honda part #91052-MAE-004 - $14.86 each. Made by NSK in Japan.
cross reference this NSK 6204UU (BU) bearing and you get 1000s results from different manufacturers

here, $10 on ebay

again, there is nothing wrong with bearings made in China as long as quality control is up to par at their facility, who ever that may be.

But they just not for me

It's probably a few $$ cheaper to buy the wheel bearings as a kit - the kit has all 3 bearings and 2 seals for $30 or less.
If your seals are fine, you can also take the bearing number to a fastener/bearing supply store and get them at a pretty reasonable price.

at the rate at which you shouldnt have to change wheel bearings.... do it right... replace em all and the seals with OEM stuff and be done with it for another 50k+ miles.

Echo echo.
And just because today's sub for All Balls is OK, doesn't mean the next one will be, and they surely change with time.

Ball bearings are one the best examples of how cheap good can be such a treat but cheap bad such a disaster.
And what I have heard about Chinese supply so far, is that there are two extremes and not much middle ground. Really good or really bad governs.

Also, wasn't there a thread last summer about a bearing stamped being one thing but was actually something else? And the guy broke his hub trying to force it in ?

That would be me, I drew the bearings in with a 3/4" fine pitch threaded rod.

Still won't use a Chinese bearing

hey guys
Thanks for all those reply, i really aprreciate it. First i think im gonna removed them , inspect them and buy them OEM or all balls or at a bearing supply shop.

For your question HONDA NG GINGSA, my bike is only 14xxx KM i know it is very low to replaced a wheel bearing. I noticed that i had to change my bearing when I was pumping air in the tire, I noticed a sideplay between the wheel center hub and the swing arm. I lift my bike and took the wheel with both hands and I could move my wheel from left to right not a lot but a small sideplay.
