Default Changing Motor Bearing on Spec 19 Turn Legal?

The bearings on my dynasty 19t has gone bad and this is already the 2nd one with the same problem. Just wanted to know if changing the bearings on a Spec 19 Turn motor is legal or not...

Thanks guys!

It doesn't really say in the rules you can, nor does it say you cannot. I would say if you replaced them with regular bearings you would not have an issue....as its just a bearing and really there is no way to coax any additional power out of it.

yes it should be legal....although you should have to replace them with identical units to make it not a hybrid (yes some associations are that piccy!) but i guess you could replace them with what ever and they wouldnt even know...as it won't do much for your motor.

I recently upgrade my FK05 to ceramics and noticed the transmission was much smoother. So I'm going to try these APS ceramic ones and see how they do.
