Are Avid bearings made in the USA or imported?

What will you notice when you have clutch bearings with a little grit in them, compared to new avid revolutions performance wise? Right now I have a set of losi cb bearings and they are started to be getting a little gritty. Also, what light bearing oil does everyone use? Right now I just put 2 drops of 3 in 1 oil on, but that oil is heavy.

If they are gritty I would suggest dunkin those babies in the garbage. Its not worth a main or your clutch bell, shoes and diff/spur gear when they go. Also I never had any luck with grease/oil on clutch bearings. It always seemed to be slung out onto clutch shoes cause slippage and self grenade real quick. I just take the new ones and blow compressed air to get the grease out. If oiling works for you rock on.
