Well I replaced my bearings with the TKO ceramic bearings this afternoon with the oven method. I have to say this was WAY easier than I ever tought it would be. I heated the crank case on the oven range until the oil started to smoke, held the crank case and hit it lightly on a piece of wood then the rear bearing fell off real easy. With a screwdriver, I then gave a few light hits on the front bearing from the inside and it fell off real easy too. while the case was still hot, I put the front bearing on the crankshaft and slid it in the front housing, I did the same for the rear bearing. Total duration of the replacement 10-15 minutes.
I just reassembled everything and it runs perfectly. To those having doubts about how easy it is, just try it, you'll be surprised.
Now, I can say I finally have peace of mind with my V-Spec
