Hey Guys,

Just wanted to let you know that I got the new bearing from Peter today and installed it. It feels really good. I'm going to run it this weekend and see how it does. I think it may be the way to go if you want to run ceramics!

the one i got i think is the previous version. its got the black ring? holding the ceramic balls. it doesnt look exactly like the one pictured in the link.so, if its the old one and it has an offset i will be able to notice when i put it back together?

i run these 2008 bearings in my novarossi because the stock rear was junk and the crank started walking around and rubbing the backplate. Bought a front and rear TKO 2008 bearings and put them in. Ive ran quite a few diff ceramic bearings in engines and TKO is the only one ill buy again. Installation was easiest ive dealt with. Tolerances are also Perfect which i cant say they are for Boca Bearings.

If your thinking about getting some TKOs dont think anymore, just purchase and youll be happy.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I fired my 367 up after putting the new TKO's in and it purrs like a kitten! It really sounds good and feels like it revs faster! I'll post again once I run it at the track this weekend! Maybe I'll finally take first and have to owe it all to tko j/k!
