I just replaced my big end bearings. I must have screwed up with the plastigauge because when I got my new bearings they were exactly the same thickness as the old ones. I mean dead on with a digital mic. And there was only the most trivial scoring in the old bearing too. I could have run them without issue. Grrr...I put the new ones in 'cause I had bought them and labeled the old ones and put 'em on the shelf.
Need a smokin' deal on some R100 big end bearings? Half price of new, precisely the same thickness.
