Default TKO Ceramic Crank Bearings

I'm looking for any insight someone may have on TKO Ceramic Crank Bearings. I'm looking at re-building one of my Novarossi motors and would like to know if anyone has used these bearings. This will be a first for me, so I'm not up to speed on who has the best bearings. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
JP

Before i even break in any of my motors, the first thing i do is install a TKO ceramic bearing. they outlast stock bearings by far.

TKO's are the only ceramic bearings we use in our modded engines, very well priced and out last most any steel bearing, silky smooth and light, and they cary ceramics for just about every engine on the market, they will have whatever you need for your NR. Good luck

When all my regular bearings die in my motors I will only install TKO. Simple facts on bearings can be found in the price. No, not the "you get what you pay for" sayin but $35 for front & rear TKO ceramics that so far have out lasted factory bearings by far for everyone I have seen use them(almost every one I know) or $65 for factory GRP/NINJA bearings that will die just as fast as the ones that came in the motor.Thats the simple fact I'm talkin bout plus Peter is an extreamely good guy when you call & will awnser any questions you may have reguardless of making a sell or not.

I'm not too sure what you mean by 'plus line nova', but the motor is a P5 that was custom built using onroad cases and an onroad crank. The rotating assy is P5. My other motor is a P5X.
