Default 9mm bearing mod

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][COLOR=white]I’m excited to let you all know that after about 30 battery packs with 9mm avid bearings my xr-10s gears are in new shape. I pulled everything apart tonight and regreased the gears and took some pics. For your information my driving style is very aggressive I have bound this thing up really bad even bound so bad it bent links. I feel this thing is 90% bullet proof now!!

I guess I missed the original post about this... what is the mod? Just putting in 9mm bearings, or did you have to do something to the plate to make them fit?.

Thanks.

Yeah, you have to open up the holes a bit.

would be nice if you did a "How too" Maybe with drill bit sizes etc. I bet you'd get a sticky!

My thoughts exactly. With some details on what bearings you swapped in would be awesome.

Will do... sorry I thought it was common knowledge... The drill bit measured 8.8mm then I dremeled the rest so it would have a tight fit. Avid 9-5-3 flanged bearings. Avid 8-5-2.5 where mounted in plastic. The mesh was tighter I think because there is no slop. I did front and rear for 14 bucks so def a cheap mod.

Correct.

Looks like Avid is out of stock on the rubber 5x9x3s. They still have metal ones though.

Just as an FYI. I'm running the reg Metal Flanged one's with no issue's at all. They seem to hold up just fine as well as the rubber ones.

My Avids are 100% A-ok. I've had it in some serious binds too. Both the ceramics/metal flange (rear) and all metal (front) are doin good.
