If you are referring to wheel bearings any bearing shop can find replacements (probably most auto parts places as well).

Invader for the info.
Checkout here if Timken, SKF or NSK had those specs.

Angst for posting.

Putting aside the Kawa Service Manual Recommendation, what will be the KM/Miles to replace front and back bearings.

Your call sir on bearing replacement to be safe before bearing failure.

Regardless of the manufacturer a cheap bearing is just that....cheap. The higher quality (more expensive) versions have harder and more highly polished bearing surfaces and are worth the extra cost. In bicycles I use ceramic bearings as they are the smoothest that I have found.

That's my two cents worth.

Japanese scientists have created a camera with such a fast shutter speed they now can photograph a woman with her mouth shut.

It varies... Replace them whenever neccessary.

Since the hub bearings are made to extremely close tolerances, the clearance can not normally be measured. Do not remove any bearings for inspection. If any bearings are removed, they will need to be replaced with new ones.
•Turn each bearing in the hub back and forth while checking for plays, roughness or binding. If bearing play, roughness or binding is found, replace the bearing.
•Examine the bearing seal for tears or leakage. If the seal is torn or is leaking, replace the bearing.

Thanks, Invader.
