    Needle bearings on CB Mallet 2

    Can i replace my Mallet 2's bushing with needle bearings (like the ones in Mallet 3) without any modification?

    I would not bother. IME the bushings are more reliable.

    What he said^^ CB bearings have been problematic for me. I also belive you'll need a proprietary tool for the axle nut, at least you do on 5050s.
