Default Tko vs Oem Novarossi Bearings?

Seems to be a huge price difference between the tko ceramic aftermarket bearings and novarossi steel bearings and ceramic bearings.

Does anyone have any hands on experience with quality vs price of bearings.

I like to keep my practice motors fresh and factory bearings are so expensive it is nearly cheaper just to replace the entire engine!

Thanks

Jamie

Default Bearings

I have used the TKO Ceramics bearings for 3 seasons now and I have had no problems with them at all. I think there great! I recommend them whenever I get the chance!

Does TKO have bearing size of 11.5 x 21 x 5 ? Having been looking around web site but can't find it... only manage to find 12 x 21 x 5. Thanks!
