while I have everything taken apart on my vibe 50 I picked up the swash and spun it and it doesnt feel smooth. Is there a way to replace the bearing or does the entire assembly have to be changed?

I loosened the set screws a little and its spins nice and smooth now? Are the set screws securing something?

That's exactly the purpose of the set screws

From the manual ... (page 25 - section 4-1)

If there is play between the upper and lower Swashplate,
tighten set screw 3 x 3 mm to lower the swashplate
little by little. Do not overtighten as binding and damage
to the bearing can occur.

Well I didnt build this one im just going though it. The ones that I have built I just made them snug. If the bearing is damaged does the entire swash need replaced or just the bearing?

You would need to replace the whole swashplate if the bearing is damamged. The V50 swash is only 35 bucks though. When I built mine I didnt need to tighten the bearing with the setscrews so I just put locktite on them and put them in "snug" Swash hasnt loosened up at all after 166 flights.
