DX450 Axle Bearings DTXC4422

Okay - so I learned the hard way that those rear axle screws need to be removed and loctite applied right out of the box. That said I've managed to lose one of the axle bearings. DTXC4422 is not in stock anywhere I can find. Backordered everywhere until January - So looks like I'm down until then.

In the mean time I'm wondering if there is a similar washer out there or some other mod that someone else has already found to get going again. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

Also - since I'm going to be ordering parts - any suggestions on absolute need to haves for the pit box?

Those look so close to the little spacers used on an fg gear cover. I'll pull mine out and have a look as I have some extra gear cover spacers here to compare it to. tower sells the duratrax one cheap and it comes with them. where are my calipers...

I had made my own until I got my back order. I just used a washer and for the lipped part a small brass spacer the same size as the inner bearing race. worked good.

my bike is down now until I get an axle. I busted a bolt off inside the axle
