I wondered about all-balls bearing quality too but only time will tell.
Stock bearings only lasted 2900 km and were toast - seals failing was a factor here ?
all balls fit was perfect and the wheel spacers were awesome - even have an o-ring
inside to seal to axle which should help stop water getting in.
the hardened seal surface will last long and only adds a tiny bit of weight !
see them here 2009 KTM 530EXC All Balls Front Wheel Spacer Kit | MotoSport
kind of like a speedy- sleeve on the old small block chev harmonic balancers

as to stuff that didn't fit ? - thought KTM used same bearings for all dirt bike wheels 125- 530 ?
maybe someone packaged wrong stuff ?
---------------------------------------------------------------
might not have been "chrome" but there was a plating that peeled up and was nasty sharp
on my stock spacers - maybe it was a hard surfacing or something ?
still have them laying in a box somewhere - not serviceable at all.
