How often does it blow bearings? What kind of bearings are they? Lube? how much end play in the clutch bell?

Most common causes are: too tight a gear mesh, mesh not being square (motor cocked), worn crank (loose fit to inner race), worn engine bearings (mesh tolerance), worn clutch bell (where bearings fit loosely allowing side loading).

Check for the clutchbell slapping against the chassis too.

Inside bearing? If so check the shim for diameter size. If its bigger than the race its getting the shield hot.

I would look at the bearings in the motor and or the crank is warped. Those seem to me to be the most logical. My buddy also had this problem with his RB. Check out and good luck.
