Does anybody install this bearing? Want to know the size of our bike bearings.

Edit:
Sorry for not clearly state the question.
I want to know who already install ceramic bearing from worldwide bearing?
I want to know the wheel bearing size (front and rear) for GSXS1000.
I plan to change my wheel bearing to ceramic bearing.

I think you will not get any sensible reply to your very vague question.
Please, what 'bearings' you are asking about ? More info is needed.

Rob.
This thread is making me dizzy. I can't find my bearings. Sorry... i had to.

Lots of bearings in the bike of all sizes and types. Which one?

Most common ones can be found from https://www.allballsracing.com/

I just used their tapered bearing kit for the steering head bearings on my FJR and was very pleased with them.

Just an observation, the Michelin Road 5 tire in that video is only starting to wear but is already showing a pronounced "cup" in the wear pattern. IMO that's only one of the undesirable consequences of those large voids in the tread design Michelin decided to go with.

This is Michelin Power 5 tire and already run 8000++KM.

The specific model is irrelevant IMO, the large void pattern that is Michelin's trademark tread design unarguably contributes to the cupping. Anyone with eyes can see the correlation.

I've been a fan of Michelin for years but you'll never see those tires on my bike.

Can’t argue that
But there is a But.
Without those big tread holes they wouldn’t be as good a wet tyre as the are.
It’s all a bit of a trade off if you ask me. Eventually I cup all my tyres. All I really want is the best grip in the most varied conditions giving the highest mileage and the cheapest price
Surly that’s not asking for too much?
