They are a different Od, than the standard 6mm bearing, so will need to be machined to fit!

Don't forget the little washer between radial, and thrust bearings, and the collars between the inside bearing and the dampers. They need to be 8mm ID too.

What are you guys gonna use for dampers BTW?

Are the 6mm & 8mm Blade grips a different part number then?
Also do the new kits come with 8mm spindle as std?

Thanks

Tim.
