Transmission Mainshaft Sealed bearing
« on: July 18, 2008, 04:32:16 PM »
Why don't you sell the sealed version of the tranmission main bearing (6303 2RS). You sell the stock version?

It's an easy and worthwhile upgrade and very inexpensive at that.

Why do you want a sealed bearing in an oil lubricated gear box.

The 4 speed is grease lubricated and if you want to run oil in it the bearings should be switched out to sealed ones.
At least 1 side of the bearing.

No vehicle manufacturer makes their own bearings. This bearing in all its configerations and options would be available at the "bearing shop".

You are absolutely right.
Every bearing I have found on the Bullet are standard off the shelf metric bearings.

So why do you expect the Re dealer to supply that part with or without seal. If he does then its simply to a make it easy for you as in one stop shopping.

   Bit like finding margerine in the butchers fridge and complaining he don't have your brand.

As far as the seal goes the sealed ones don't cost much more than the open ones and if you want a seal on just 1 side you can just pull the seal out. From a stocking point of view all I would stock would be rubber seals on both sides bearings (2RS) and let the customer turn them into whatever they wanted.
