Got some coming to my door for $3.15 ea. shipping included. Is this a good price? Had to buy 8 to get that price. I needed 6 anyway. Got'em from vxb.com.

You get what you pay for!! Bearings I deal with everyday at my work place. I work on printing presses. There are hundereds of bearings on a press. Buying cheap bearings for low speed stuff is alright but sometimes the press fit is not as tight as some of the better bearings. Theres different letters with the bearing numbers like your 6205 for example. some bearing companys will use a RS or ZZ at the end. a 6205RS means it has a rubber seal ZZ means it has a steal dust shield for some manufactures. 6205RS2 might have snap ring or a lock callor on it. For a snowmobile your wanna make sure you have a RS bearing with the rubber seal. 1 is for water not to get in. 2 the jackshaft bearings have a dust shield the oil will run in the bearing and wash the grease out and a puddle of oil will be on the floor cause your chain case leaks. Keep that in mind when you buy bearings. The lettering on the bearing will tell you what your getting. As far as bearing goes I would say NTN is about the best on the market. They build one just for snowmobiles with a special seal and grease for moisture that gets in the bearing. No matter what you do moisture still going to get in the bearin from heating up and cooling down so fast from the cold weather.

I agree with ya on quality over price but for an idler wheel,- I really see no need for spending more on something that will only be used for a track riding on it. Crankshafts or something that has to hold together like a close tolerance, heat tolerance, or having an rpm rating, absolutely. I disassemble and put my own grease into them anyway. Alot of people say its too much work but I probably won't touch em again for the rest of the sleds life.
