Sato rearset bearings

Has anyone replaced the bearings inside the shift pedal on sato rearsets? If so, where do you find the bearings. I called Sato and I'm not sure the woman understood what I was talking about. So...I also called Kyle Racing and they don't know where to find them. Any help would b appreciated. thx,
John

The easiest way would be to remove one of the pegs and levers, and the bearing collars, and then check around the outer edge of the bearing for the bearing number and possibly manufacturer.
Depending on how it was pressed in, the number may be on the inner or outer side of the lever.
You can then go to a bearing house and have them cross-reference the bearing.

NSK makes a ZZ series bearing that has stainless sealing covers instead of the nylon covers. If you pull the bearing, the outside cover like Sub stated should have a 3 to 4 digit number. That is the bearing worlds standard number. Those little devils shouldn't cost more than a few bucks.

EX 6004ZZ is a JIS bearing

Any local bearing house should have them. Or you can get them online at a place like McMaster Carr. You will have to know the industry part number, as described above (most likely a 608 or 698) or atleast the ID/OD/W.

If you get me any of the above, I can give you a part number to take to a bearing house (Applied Industrial/Motion Industries/Kaman etc...)

On my Rizoma's, they just used cheapo Chinese bearings, but I interchanged them and procurred some (I'm a bearing sales engineer, so it's easy for me).

I would also recommend getting something with contact seals. The shields are okay, but still allow water to get in there and rust the bearings. That is what killed the bearings in my Rizoma's, and that was with only riding in the rain and washing. It's stored inside.

The ZZ bearings only use a shield and are used in high speed low-friction environments and are not nearly as weather resistant as the RS or 2RS full contact sealed type.
The RS or 2RS bearings use full contact seals.
These would be the bearing type for the rearseats since they'll be exposed to rain or washes.
