Default Engine Bearings

I have a nova 821b that I have about three gallons on. I have replaced the front bearing with a tko ceramic. I am just curious as to what bearings most people change first the front or the rear. What one causes the most problems? I am thinking I shoud change the rear, but what should I look for if it is bad?

well if you have the crank out stick your finger in the back bearing and turn it.. if it feels notchy then it would be a good idea to replace it...

Usually the fronts get dirty and wear out first. You have to really clean the rear bearing and oil it to get a good feel it it's good or not.
