Wheel bearings, what brand to use?

I'm thinking I need to replace the front hub bearing on my 07 450 grizz again. I used All Balls the last time and they just don't seem like they lasted like they should've. What brand do you all use?

All balls are as cheap as you can get for bearings. You need to get koyo bearings or another brand that isn't made in China. Koyo are the oem bearings, but you can get them much cheaper online then buying them through Yamaha. I've had good luck with nsk also. The factory seals aren't very good IMO either since they don't have any sort of garter spring. I bought normal oil seals online that had garter springs on them. I have the sizes of the bearings and both seals all written down, I can get them for you tomorrow if you want.

OEM for wheel bearings. Iím not sure about your machine but the Kawasaki terex bearings are the identical Koyo bearings in the Griz 700 and are way cheaper.

His 450 doesn't use that style of bearing on the front.

Yeah those are the bearing sizes you need. The 6006-2rs is the number to search for, just make sure they aren't from China (wholesalers are good at making it look like they aren't from China even though they are, so go for a name brand you've heard of). The "C3" is the bearing clearance. Pretty much all the bearings you will find inthat size will be C3 clearance.

For the seals, the sizes are 38x55x8 for the inner seal and 38x55x7 for the outer seal. Find some double lip Buna seals that have a garter spring on them, that will be the longest lasting setup in my experience. Avoid viton seals because they are too stiff, especially in cold weather. The inner Yamaha seal has a funky flange on it that presses against the cv cup, but you will never find an aftermarket seal with the same lip on it. I ran regular seals without the lip for a long time with no issues. The lip seemed to hold more crud under it then it protected anything anyways. Having the garter spring is well worth the tradeoff of having no extra lip.
