Re: Saito FA72 bearing

I usually head to my local bearing supplier. More expensive, but guaranteed to get good quality.

I have tried some of the less expensive Pac Rim offerings. Did not last long.

Re: Saito FA72 bearing

I tried to send you a PM but your mail box is full.

I sell all steel C3 rated bearings for our engines. A regular bearing will work but a C3 is a stock replacement for most manufacturers. $20.00 a set shipped. Cheers Floyd

Re: Saito FA72 bearing

Had one of these, beautiful engine, got my bearings from General Bearings. Paid a bit more for quality stuff but lasted.

I bought a set from Boca recently. Can't recall which ones I got, middle of the road priced ones. See if they last longer than the cheapos from eBay......

Re: Saito FA72 bearing

don't know what you guy's think is expensive for good bearings.. but I have never paid more than 25 for a pair for any engine.. compared to the LHS that is a quarter of the price..

I always check the ratings on them.. and the ones I get are usually rated for 25000 to 60000 rpm...
