Our situations are obviously different, Perazzi. I don't have an in with a bearing supplier, and I don't need to order bearings in bulk, so it's unlikely I'm going to get anything at cost, or even close to it. If the only way I can find out the price of a bearing is to email the bearing supplier and ask for a quote, I'll probably opt for just getting OEM ones from RMATV. However, since you do have some familiarity with bearing prices, maybe you can help me suss out whether this is worthwhile or not.
The bearing sizes I need, and the prices charged for OEM, are as follows:
The front wheel bearings and one rear wheel bearing are 22x44x12. They're coded as 60/22, and I believe they're 2RS. OEM price is $14.95 each.
One rear wheel bearing is 22x50x14. It's coded as 62/22DG. OEM price is $29.91.
The clutch hub bearing is 25x47x12. It's coded as 6005RD. OEM price is $29.99.
Based on your knowledge of the "guy walking in off the street" price, do those prices sound in line with the prices I'd get at a bearing supply house?
As for something like All Balls/Moose/Pivot Works, I'm not going to slam them because I know some guys swear by them, but I've heard enough bad experiences with them that I would probably steer clear of them unless I didn't have a choice.
