I'm lost you talking about using BK bones instead of the xxx-s ones on the xxx-s? Why and what do you have to mill to get them to work?

they call them BK bones. they are just regular bones with bearings on them. you have to mill the outdrives to get the bearings to fit.

We just use the XXX steering bearings. Just gotta shave the outdrive slot to 3/16. I suggest doing it on a mill though, I've seen a dremel job and it was pretty hurting..
