    Banshee Rune bearing size/number

    Hi,I have a Rune I purchased during 2018 (I think its 2018, but may be 2017 model). I want to replace the bearings which may be creaking. Anyone knows the dimensions or name of the suspension bearings?

    Thanks!

    its in the rune manual on banshees site. RWC sells bearing kits for te rune i believe. Creaking is usually from dry pivot axles and hardware, not the bearings themselves. Twice a year disassemble he pivots, lube everything up, spin the bearings to see how they feel (and change the load point); and replace if necessary, and/or remove the beraing seals, clean out and push in some new grease, new grease on axles and reassemble. just dont get grease n the bolt threads they will need blue loctite.

    On the banshee website they have all the manuals for the different frames.
    This is the Rune one, tells you what bearings you need, bearing removal and install procedure, and torque settings

    I got my bearings from VXB or something like that, but they were Nachi Japanese bearings and cheap. Keep in mind that these are extremely low speed bearings and low load where the seals are most important. Enduro bearings are low bidder commodity Chinese crap. Buy the best. Not the most accepted.

    Huh? I thought enduro Max bearings from RWC were the best. Which are the best then?
