INSTALLATION : Ceramic Hybrid Bearings and Full Ceramic Bearings require proper installation to ensure optimal performance. Do not use any kind of blunt force or jarring impact such as striking the bearings directly or indirectly with any kind of hammer, rubber mallet or socket wrench. The best method for installation is one that evenly pulls or pushes the bearing in from both sides at a straight angle. A vice or Boca's Bearing Installer tool is suggested.

Q: How long does it take to break in a bearing?

A: Unfortunately, it is not an exact science. Most bearings are packed in thick, viscous grease or with a light weight oil. As a result the bearing generally will not free spin to the touch. Over time as the lube thins out, and warms up during each use, the bearing will become much freer. So all you need to do is to use the bearing normally and it will break in naturally. The more you use the bearing the more broken in it becomes until eventually it is so broken in that it is time to replace it.
