saying that for peace of mind i will buy the FAG7200B...

i have done some search on sites for mechs engineers
maybe i'm wrong... but it seems to me that the type of bearing that Mo.Co use on Sporties is an deep grove radial ball bearing... and it seems it can take (and is designed for) either radial, than axial loads...

If you get a 7200B compare it to the bearing you take out. Make sure you install it correctly. It's directional in regards to thrust.

If you think the original bearing is good enough just leave it there.

of course
axial load outward (as to say to my face)


FAG or SKF is the same isn'it?

If they're both 7200B they're both axial thrust if that's what you're asking.

I bought FAG because I found a really good deal on bearings that were NOS.
I would have bought FAG or SKF.

Just a heads up for future bearing purchasers. I purchased a FAG 7200B off Amazon last week, the exact same one that is linked earlier on in this thread. Fake bearings are unfortunately very common so I was nervous buying it from a non authorized dealer but fortunately the one I received it ended up being legitimate. Bearing companies now put a QR code on all bearing packages. You can download the free World Bearing Association (WBA) app on your phone where you scan the QR code and it will tell you if the bearing is authentic or not. Something worth doing to ensure you aren't putting a fake POS in there that could cause you problems down the line.
