You got it! I spent a fair bit of coin on transmission and wheel bearings and it did NOTHING! Bike gained no mph anywhere.
Stay away from the ceramic bearings man. Unfortunately you would be just wasting your money like I did lol.
Yikes. Not what I wanted to hear.
They must work though if they have good reviews and are $400, right?
Yes, they sure do. I wasn't saying they were only available for bicycles, just that for your motorcycle you probably won't realize much of a change, and the sealed ball bearings that come with the bike are much more robust and tolerant of contamination. But if you go for it, let us know how it works for ya!
Gotcha. Sorry, I guess I read your post wrong. lol
I have the world wide ceramic wheel bearings. They work great, but the bearings alone won't make a huge difference.
Everyone always hates on me when I say this but super-light wheels and bearings don't make a huge difference; At least in road racing. Now I'm not saying you won't notice them....just that I'd have everything else like suspension and geometry dialed in before I bought some couple hundred dollar bearings. I've had BST's, marchesinis and a set of OZ wheels with worldwide bearings in all of them...no failures.
Definitely notated. My bike is lowered 2" in the front and 1.5" in the rear. I also have a Gen.1 Hayabusa front fender on the bike. As you can probably tell, I like to do top speed runs. lol

Thanks, Mike! I think your free shipping is what will seal the deal if I decide to go with them. I'm just having mixed thoughts now based on some of the reviews with not making much of a difference. For $400 that doesn't seem too practical.
