wheel bearing

I've been reading a lot of threads about the wheel bearings, and am going to order a set for my 2004 ZX10.

I also need bearings for 2005 ZX-6RR. Anyone know if the bearings are the same for these wheels?

I have this info for the bearings on thte 10R

2 NSK6004vv
2 NSK 6204vv
1 NSK 6205vv

(will order from bearingworks.com)

Thanks all!

Check the KHI OEM part #'s for both bikes is 1 way but since they must be removed ya might as well wait and get the #"s off the bearings themselves.

10-4.
I have two sets of wheels for both bikes. the bearings on the ZX-6 are fine, but from what you said BD about how easy these bearings spin, i would like to upgrade all bearings from factory to the ones offered by bearingworks. and i would rather not yank the good ones until i need to.

i will do further research.

What was your total price for just the 10R bearings....I have been thinking about this mod myself for a while.

They have gone up cost wise since i did mine 3yrs ago but i suspect about $80 for 1 set.

Is it noticable and worth the expense?

concensus says that the difference b/t ceramic and a good steel bearing is marginal. whereas the cost is about 400% greater for ceramic.

the pitfalls of ceramic bearings are that they are more "fragile" than steel bearings. most say not to use ceramic for the street due to road conditions posing a hazard to the ceramic bearings. the street is just too rough to justify spending four times as much for a something that is, say, four times likely to break.
