I have tko's in one of my ninja's. They suck more air then my stock ninja, AND my picco with stock bearings is smoother.

Never said they were bad. For the money they are good. But i cannot believe they are the best. If they are, the other's must really suck. My first hand expierience for me is >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> then what anyone on hear says. Especially when they are sponsered by them or sell them

getting some bocas. HA!

Answer-RC now has motor bearings in both standard and ceramic for Novarossi engines. I am running a set in my +4 currently and they are butter smooth, and the pricing is excellent as well! Give them a try...you won't be sorry you did.

TKO's aren't the best for me, and i could give 2 shits.

there are plenty of good people on here, and some even go to my track. But some of you need to get a life, or a day job.

Have you been running your engine under water again? If so then it needs some air. And settle down beavis. As I was saying a page ago I enjoy the diversity that you bring to the forum. I can't help it if my day job allows me to do whatever I want to. It's all part of being owner.

All good frank.

never mind me, i wound't hurt a fly. but sometimes the bug gets me.

I like it here. Matter of fact, my wife thinks i like it to much.

btw, i was never taking a jab at tko, they are very good bearings for the price. I just think the front bearing sucks to much air for me. Maybe i got a bad one? The rear one i have is great. I will replace the front one with boca.

get a hold of me if you want your bearings done

the very cheap bearings that are ceramic are from acer , i debated on using those bearings but upon testing them in my own engines they were not quality worthy but what do you expect for 12$ bearings and thats the price to the public .

i agree

every so often i get a front bearing that just has a horribly formed seal that leaks as soon as you put it in .

personal fave combo for the price : rear tko ceramic / front novarossi 17011 with ceramic balls . you wont find those front bearings in ceramic anywhere !!!

Man dreaux, what are you smoking? If everyone loves them but you have a problem, good indication that you did something wrong. Or maybe you got that one in a thousand dud.

I have been using TKO's to great success for a couple years now. And yes, I have to buy them. No sponsorship deal for me. I admit, I had a problem with one of the oddball sized bearings when they first came out. It had way too much play in it new. I hear they have fixed that one since then. Every other one has performed beautifully, both in my own motors and in friends motors I have built.

Thanks for all the kind words. Dreaux and I have been in contact and we are sending him a new front bearing to try.
