Default <<engine bearing service>>

i just bought the grp bearing tool kit and was going to try to do something on the side as far as changing bearings for people ,they supply the bearings and send me the motor case and bearings i would remove the old bearings and put the new ones in and send it back.what does everyone think would be a good price for this i was thinking like 20.00 to do both bearings and shipped back to the customer. LMK

25.00 for both bearing replaced,the motor must be sent to me as case with bearings in it and the new bearings to go in it because i dont want to be responsible for stripped screws and mawed sleeves ,i know things like this can happen.

I personally own a GRP kit, but could definately see it being a very helpful service for many. Not sure about $25 though. Depending on how much it would be to ship, that might be too high. Considering it probably takes 2-3 minutes to remove the old bearings and install new ones.

Just my opinion.

there are quite afew of us that do this service already here on the rctech forums . i would probably concentrate on local business until you get a reputation for excellent service

I have the grp tool too and IDK but bearings are difficult to replace without it. 20 might be worth it to some but I have noticed guys are cheap when it comes to spending cash on rc everyone is always looking for the deal. Personaly I prob would pay 20 for this service but then again I am the type that gets the engine modded and then pays the modder 50 bucks to break the engine in for me just so I can bolt it in and go. I like the easy button. Most would break it in themselves. So IDK but you can try to market this service. Worth a shot.
