Are the Avid bearings noticeably better than the kit bearings? Did a full teardown / cleaning of the rear end this weekend and cleaned em all out, but after all that Im in the school of thought that $1 a bearing is probably a better move, just curious if the bearings themselves are of higher quality.

I don't know if they're better, but I don't think they're any worse. Tons of people run Avid bearings, for good reason. They're a whole buck a piece. When they get gritty, just toss them. I do.

yes they are miles better. I am running AVID ceramics in my tranny and revolutions in the hubs. I have 4+ months on my bearings and they are still like butter. I would get extra front wheel bearings if you buy some. Why? Those bearings are normally the first to go. Those get twisted ,turned and smacked into stuff, while driving. But in short, yes, they are much smoother. And I HIGHLY recommend getting the AVID slip bearing oil. It lasts a very long time and the applicator it great for just putting in a drop. And a drop is all you need.

Another vote for Avid bearings, running a full set of revolutions. Also running their ceramic diff balls and ceramic captured thrust bearing.

+1 on that. Running same setup. Much better than stock, in fact just ordered a new set for my b44 since I liked these so much.

Avids are great bearings but for the gearbox Schelle ceramics are the way to go!

if running mod, justthe factory team ones from associated are pretty darn sweet for the price. once the grease breaks down in them they are awesome, next step is to clean and oil them.

Avid has ceramics also for the tranny. I have them in mine and they are silly smooth. The SLIP oil makes them even better. I swear their is magic dust in that oil
