I installed the wheel bearings today and while I didn't get to do a test of the stock bearings, I did perform a simple spin test of the wheels. Here's what I did: reached between bike.the fork legs, palmed the tire and pulled toward me as hard as I could. The tire spun for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Keep in mind, the brake caliper was not mounted when the test was performed. For the back wheel, I performed the same spin test with the caliper mounted and belt attached and the tire spun 2 1/4 revolutions. So far I like what I am seeing, but the real test will come when I am able to road test the bike.

Keep us updated. I can't see a downside except the cost.

P.S. Did you just call to order? I didn't find a link to order on the website.

Will do. They are definitely expensive at $320 for 4 bearings. I also had to buy a special tool to remove and install them. As for how to order, I went on the website and sent an email inquiring about the bearings. The owner Dave replied back and told me what the HD part number was and what the WWB part number was along with pricing. He asked if I wanted him to send me a PayPal invoice and I told him yes. I paid him and he sent them right out. I had them in hand in 3 days.
