There were the best I could find

http://www.bocabearings.com/main1.as.../C3_Z/S_#5_AF2 - 99.99 a piece
or
http://www.bocabearings.com/main1.as...=SMR625C-ZZ_#3 - 17.99 a piece

But I went with these due to cost

http://www.bocabearings.com/main1.as...MR625C-YUU_NB2 - 11.99 a piece

i think im gonna order the abec 1 bearing u listed which is the one u got , cause the others say that they r meant to be used in a clean enviroment.

if i get this can i only change the front and keep the rear stock, and i opened the can there are some scratches on the magnet i think from the balls when they flew out of the bearing will it affect anything on the motor

On a side note, anyone have trouble keeping the bearing snug inside its socket? When I had to clean out my motor, the rear bearing would easily fall out of its socket and that cannot be good. Any suggestions on what glue to use would be appreciated.

any thread locker will work, i use green loctite at work for 5-12in diameter bearings, works well
