    Anyone running ceramic clutch bearings?

    Since last year, I run Boca ceramic bearings and I really like them.They last 3 gallons with no problem.

    They are a little more expensive but they really worth the price.

    I buy the 10 bearings for $10 bucks, they last about a half a gallon. Been lucky so far.
    How much do the ceramic bearings cost ?
