best wheel bearing brand?

Recommended Posts

anyone on here recommend a certain wheel bearing brand for supermoto use?

I'm thinking the higher speeds and pavement riding might benefit from a higher quality bearing....?

I like SKF. But all brands that are sealed cheapen out on the grease put in at the factory. You need to take a pick and pull the cover off the sealed bearing and pack it with a proper amount of grease. You will be shocked, there is a substantial weight difference between the repacked and factory when you are done. Pretty much all your bearings need to be repacked from the factory, cheap bastards are cutting corners to save and it ends up costing us. My 2 cents. Cheers, S.

I like SKF or FAG, both high quality brands. I don't bother to add grease and have good luck. It is my observation at least from the automotive side of the world that bearings don't fail, the seals do. Once the seal is compromised the bearing then gets water usually, and dirt inside and then destructs. The failed bearings are almost always rusty, due to water ingress.
