ZKLs or FAGs?

I feel like, as far as moby bearings go, FAGs get all the glory. But are ZKLs just as good? They are cheaper, and all metal, so you can heat them without worrying about meltage. AND i like the idea of not having plastic in my engine. Any reason ZKLs shouldnt be used over FAGs?

FAGs do have the awesome name, though.

My FAGs don't have any plastic. Just gobs of grease.

Just did a rebuild with ZKL and thus far I am impressed.

Fags need lots of lube!

Re: ZKLs or FAGs?

I'm not trying to be funny, but are you serious Daniel?

I'm doing a rebuild with Fags right now.

Re: ZKLs or FAGs?

i always use FAG

Re: ZKLs or FAGs?

I hear they just allowed selling those FAG's in California.

Honestly, I think both bearings will be up to snuff but I've only used the FAG's. That 'plastic' in them is going to be able to withstand all the heat you could reasonably throw at it. You do not need to worry about it deforming when you are heating the case to remove them and the crank, just don't put a torch to it.

Re: ZKLs or FAGs?

trust me, ive melted the FAGs before.

Re: ZKLs or FAGs?

...well, you did heat them up in a skillet.

i just rebuilt a motor and replaced the zkls with fags. they're just a higher quality product, i think. sometimes things just _feel_ nicer, you know?
