Default rear bearing problem....

I wondering if the Boca rear ceramic bearing for vspecs is better than the TKO bearing? The Boca is twice the price of the TKO. I thought Amain would not get the TKO bearing back in stock for a while, so I got the Boca. Right after the order shipped, they got the TKO. Do you think I should return the Boca for TKO?

What epoxy do you use to glue the thermal insulator on the carb?

I put TKO ceramic's in my Ninja, but I was surprised with how much side to side slop was in them. Talked to a couple guys at the track after noticing that, and they had to send some back as they had vertical play too right out of the package. Mine are still going strong..

My good buddy just got in some Boca's and he said they have no noticeable play, and they look very high quality.

I know everyone suggests the TKO's, but I just did not get a warm and fuzzy feeling when dropping them in.

edit: I'm no nitro motor bearing pro, so this play could be part of the design, but I do know that the better the bearing rating usually the tighter and more precise they are.

Just to clarify...TKO has engineered the engine bearings for high RPM. The tolerances are correct for the engine application. If you have any questions or concerns please call us anytime or email.

I use TKO with great results.

But to tell ya the truth I would just slap that boca in. They are good bearings too, and you already have it.
