Bearings

Is this maybe a good time to ask who sells a good set of bearings for the rear linkage, shock bearing and swingarm bearings that may be better than Yam. OEM? I've heard some bad things about ALL BALLS/MOOSE RACING/MSR/Chinese garbage bearings over in thumper talk, any other Brands? I have a need to redo all of them before my trip this summer.

ps. What's recommended to clean the old bearings prior to regreasing if they are not replaced?
I later found this link that explains quit a bit about that "plastic stuff" http://www.thumperfaq.com/swingarm.htm
