Default .21 Drake Platnium bearings

Anyone know the case bearings sizes for the drake Platimum motors? I have a bearing going out and want to replace the bearings with ceramics but want to make sure I am ordering the correct sizes.

Thanks!

I replaced one, I just put one from a Novarossi in it. Should be the same as a V-spec also.

I have this problem before and would look for after markey bearing but cant get the actual size on this rear bearing. someone is telling me that take out the bad one and measure it and buy back the same size as the old bearing OD area cant be wear out so measure and that is actual size bearing. By the way my engine is LRP Z.21R. I try to find the OEM of this engine but no luck. End up order original bearing from LHS.

I could not find specs for the bearing size on picco's site or the trinity site. Picco just listed the bearings by part number and front bearing or rear bearing descriptions.

I bought some bearings from amain a couple days ago. They should be here tomorrow. Thanks for the help guys.
