I need to know what is the best rear bearing carrier for a stock swing arm. I have a nice 2004 duner build. My bearing carrier is shot because it has been missing a bolt so I get some wheel wobble when I ride on the rode. I want something that will give me less rolling resistance but I don’t want to sacrifice longevity of use.

Any double row is good. They start around $100. If you want the best go with RAD Rad Rear Atv Billet Double Bearing Carriers - Splash'n Dirt Distribution Canada

Those rad bearing carriers seem nice. They are a little high in the price range. Do you know of any good brand in the 100-150$ range. I’m only 16 so I work minimal hours.

Did they have less rolling resistance than stock? Trying to put more power to the ground. Am I gonna have to buy an drag carrier for that?

If you want less drag, then yes, you will need a different carrier. I suggest tapered bearings. I seem to remember a thread on them and saying that they put down less power, but if they are set up properly and maintained properly they have less drag, at least that has been my experience.

You say you want less drag, you don’t want to sacrifice longevity, and you want it cheap. Sorry it doesn’t work that way. You can pick two.

As Hoser said, you can't have it all. Money seems to be the issue, go with the cheap. They work well and with new bearings your resistance should be minimal. The cheap carriers, I would assume use the China made bearing. A Japanese bearing would be more beneficial. If your just trail riding, the cheaper ones will be fine. If your drag racing, you'll need to spend the monies. 😉

send your carrier to Glann Innovations (look them up on FB) and they rebuild it way better than any stock carrier out there..

Just curious, what makes them way better? What bearings are they using? What seals are they using? I’m always interested to know what makes something way better.
