Any one done this, is it as straight forward as it appears in the manual?

My rear bearings are shot and need replacing is it worth going for the ceramic ones?

    cant imagine it will be to complex.

    Link to manual?

    the only things that i can see may cause issues is making sure all the bearings fully seated. Or you may find the axle feels like it binds.

    make sure you have tubs for the small bits. :wink:
