    They look pretty good to me, seals as well.

    Worth a try at that price, surely!!

    I am yet to change wheel bearings in the RSV, however in my old Duke, the front wheel bearings were dble race ... was an idle question really. If those on the Bay are the same numbering, then they should be sweet.
    Just fitted new rubber, front and rear on mine. Wheel bearings still feel good

    I got a set of OZ's second hand. When I took the bearing seals off they were rusted and shot to bits. I couldn't even get them out. I have had to leave them with the place that is powder coating them to get them out. They were well knackered.

    supposedly only done 12,000 miles as well!!!

    Bearings are like any other item, you can get good quality manufacturers, or you can get cheap shitty ones that won't last

    Can you find out what brand they are

    I have mailed him to ask.

    How much should I be paying for a set of bearings and seals then?

    I've been told that a lot of bearing problems is caused by presure washing !

    Not a common name in England being an American company. SKF own them so that can't be a bad thing I suppose as SKF are top bearings.

    Well I have bought them, so I will let you know what they are like and they perfom. If they are any good, it presents a huge saving on OE.

    I bought mine from a local bearing supplier for under 20. You need a internal bearing puller for the rear or a long, pointed steel drift and a mechanical sympathy bypass. Oh, and a big hammer.
