Best bearings ever

2001 CR250r

Just as the other guy said. The chamfer or bevel on the upper shock bearing was not enough making the bearing impossible to install. I was commited so I carefully ground the bevel to match the old bearing on a fine wheel bench grinder. After that it fit. Do not buy it unless you like waisting time. OEM parts for OEM quality


Bought the spherical bearing kit for my crf the bearing race wasn't beveled enough for the retainer clip to fit in the groove. Also bought linkage kit for 05 yz 125 one of the bearings was the wrong size in the kit. Better luck with Allballs or OEM.

Kit is great as usual from Pivot Works, but for those new to changes or even a Veteran don't forget the shock bearing is a pivoting bushing and has a wire retainer that must be removed. If you forget you will either not get it removed or if you have a bearing press you will damage your shock.

Take your time

The kit included all that was needed for my KTM, however the outer seals were really a tight fit. When compared to the OEM they were actually slightly larger. Take your time and it will work. Bike works great!

Great product, awesome performance.

If you need to replace bearings on your bike, then this kit is the way to go. All bearings and seals included in one package, and the parts seem to be of great quality.

kit comes with top and bottom shock bearings, install pretty easy, if you dont have a press a bench vise and a little fines will do the job

Good stuff for a fair price

I installed this set in my 97 CR250. I've had no problems with any pivot works bearing kit I've ever purchased - as opposed to all balls products which have not worked out well for me in the past. Would definitely recommend this and any other pivot works bearing kits.

So much better

i am very satisfied with the performance of this product. installation can be without special tools. use a torch on the shock, freeze the upper bearing and tap it in with a socket.

Bearing Kit

Good Quality and easy installation.

I tore my 400ex down last winter and went over every bearing, bushing,nut, bolt,washer and seal to say the least. I made the mistake of buying "no name" bearings on ebay in the effort to save a few bucks and i caused myself nothing but headaches, the front wheelbearings wouldnt fit, i sent them back, the swingarm bearings fit but there were only half the amount of rollers internally ( they wore out 3 months later) and the shock bearings didnt come with the seals or the metal bushings that the bolt rides in. I ended up replacing all of them with pivot works, which came with everything needed for complete installtion with no hassles or headaches, i will gladly spend the very minnimal extra money for a quality product anyday. keep up the good work

Q: I also have a very springy rearend i think i need the nitrogen chamber rebuilt but if i do that should i also replace the bearings?

A: Usually the linkage and shock bearing will wear in similar ways. I would inspect the linkage bearing first and if they need replacing replace the shock bearing. But obvious wear on the shock bearing should be addressed as well.

Q: I have a springy tail end, will this kit make it stiff?

rear end is bouncey and i want it stiff.

A: If it's too soft you will need to either go with a stiffer spring or adjust your shock. The bearings wont stiffen up your suspension.
