Re: Which bearing for the final drive?
Ordering using either number will get you what they have in stock, not a particular bearing.
In my opinion, neither bearing is better than the other. I am quite positive now that the failures were due to improper machining or installation practices, not bearing quality. Both FAG and SKF are respected high quality bearing producers.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
