I have used the vbx bearings several times in my pilot....I have had good luck with them..They are inexpensive, and I wouldn't trust them in an engine application, but they are o.k. for wheel bearings....
I always take the seal off the inner side of the bearing so I can grease the inner hub and keep grease to the bearing...Leave the seal on the outer side to help keep dirt out...

Ask pilothawk if he has a pair of bearings for the 250. Sometimes he has some sometimes he doesn't.

I don't have any. The FL250 bearings aren't listed as a 6306, they are a different part# from honda. HOWEVER, the stock fl250 main bearing and the 6306 are the same dimensions. The stock bearing has 6 balls and the 6306 has 7.

With bearings you USUALLY get what you pay for. In an engine I would use any QUALITY jap or US bearing but I would stay away from the China stuff. That being said its your money and it IS for an FL250. Good bearings are cheaper than a rebuild....

Also like Hoodlum said, if you end up with a sealed bearing you have to take the seals on the bearings themselves are removed, and any grease or other coatings are removed from the bearings. Clean them with carb or brake cleaner and let them air dry then coat with 2-stroke oil before installing them.

When installing heat the cases in an oven to 250 for 10-15 min with the seals already installed (applies to FL250's only, and make sure the wife isn't home!) At this point you should have had the bearings in the freezer overnight. When you install the bearing they should drop right in. If they don't seat completely, TAP EVENLY AROUND THE OUTER RACE ONLY until they are seated.

To get the crank into the cases, freeze the crank, and heat the cases bearing side UP.

I stopped at atlantic bearing today with my fl250 crank bearing in hand looking for replacements and the guy said even if they are the size they need to be an automotive grade that he did not sell. he suggested a motorcycle shop
