I order from vxb bearings in Cali. You can get 3 full set for around $30. When you get then just repack them.

Most times a spec bearing is just that a specification. You can go spend $10 a bearing and they come out of the same bin as the 5 for $10.

Vxb is easy to order online from ship fast and have good bearings. Every set on the DRZ has outlived OEM

Bikes are like women. What you think you want, and what you want, change after the first ride.
