I used this bearing in the front hub of a dirt bike. It was shielded unlike OE which is better considering the environment. It was a fraction of the cost of OE with better quality. I always turn to VXB for bearing needs and I'm rarely disappointed. The only suggestion I can make that is valid is that occasionally I want a single bearing or two that is only available in a quantity of ten or so. Otherwise I have absolutely nothing to complain about.
