FAG Bearings for AVL500
« on: June 16, 2013, 02:35:50 PM »
Hello Everyone :)

Well, recently I tried getting better bearings for my bike and as usual, the cheap ones are the only ones available here and the next best option for me was the FAG X-Life bearings. I see a lot of Iron barrel users going for these but not sure if they'll work on AVL motor (Not sure about the specs). So.. can anyone share some information on this?

I think these are the ones that works on Iron Barrel engines -

Regards,
Sanket

Those will work, and are excellent bearings.
But the price is much higher than I normally sell them for.
Maybe if they will pay free shipping to India, it might be a good deal.

Yea pretty expensive, these are rare and tough to source so I thought why not go for something which will make the ride reliable first, then go for performance mods, maybe. So then I will give them a try, I was not sure if the AVLs and Iron barrels had the same type/spec bearings.

Thanks a ton for the information Tom!

Showing my ignorance, these engines use two different size roller bearings?

I could understand if it used one roller bearing and one ball bearing or the two different roller bearings were on the output side of the crank and a ball bearing was on the timing side.

Yes, they use 2 different outside diameter bearings as main bearings. The timing side is the smaller bearing. They are both rollers.
The drive side output shaft bearing on the crank is a large ball bearing.
3 bearings on the crank, plus the big end con-rod bearing.

Hi, About half a year ago at 23000 miles, I replaced the main bearings in my AVL for these FAG X-life ones. I remember seeing 'made in India' etched or printed on the side of these bearings, so I should hope they are available there as well.

Actually you can see 'India' printed on the side on the Amazon picture you posted. These are far too expensive by the way. I bought my X-life for a fraction of the cost in the UK.

Bullz Eye! :P

Well, yea things changed when I saw that printed. I am trying to get the same ones for a lot cheaper price. Hope it works out!

Yamunotri - Can you please share the bearing specs and details? The ones you used. Part numbers would help a lot.

Hi Sanket. I have long since thrown the boxes the bearings came in away, but that doesn't really matter, because the bearing numbers, which are the same as the spare part numbers, is all you really need to track them down. The FAG x-life I bought are 'NU205R' and 'NU305', the third bearing on the drive side is a ball bearing called '6305', and was by another manufacturer I have forgotten.

So you mean to say that the stock OEM bearings of AVL has the same part number as the FAG X-Life ones?
