Arrow Poll: Have you replaced your stock bearings?

It would be interesting to see how many members from this forum have replaced their rod bearings and how many have not done it yet or donít plan on doing them.

I believe there's already a poll on this from years ago. Maybe you could revive it and post your thoughts there?

Yes Iíve seen the Condition example thread and I follow it, but not every member on here who have changed his bearings will post/have pictures of them. Many members get them changed and just throw them away.

This poll has happened before. Also, I don't know what kind of data your expecting with the limited options for voting. There are more possible responses than you've provided.

Iíve looked for this poll and coundnt find it, just remember we have a lot of new members join every single day who might not have seen the old threat youíre speaking of. Iím expecting very simple data, at current moment how many people already changed their RB and how many riding on stock bearings as we speak.

2011.5 just crossed 70k. Dailied and tracked. Warmed up properly.

That being said I've ordered BE bearings and bolts and will put them on soon. Let's see how my bearings look. I have a feeling they'll be fine but oh well. Piece of mind.

Got my ZCP E90 with 48K 2mo ago. Bearings and crap are ordered and will be swapped before 50k. I just figured this $2,500 was part of the cost of admission.

Only 30K on my '08, still original. Realize Blackstone isn't perfect but I've got a report for every one of the last 4 oil changes so I can actually see any trending/variance.
