Bearings for Eflite 400

I have to replace the bearings on my Eflite 400 outrunner. Eflite can't provide the bearings or even tell me what size they are. An outfit in Florida (Boca Bearings) will replace them, but I may have to mail them a bearing to match the size.

Does anyone know the exact replacement size of the bearings in this motor? If not I will post when I find out. I hate to buy a new motor when it just needs a $2 bearing.

I would call Horizon Hobbies and ask specifically for the bearings as they only lists the motor shaft as a replacement for this motor....

Also, if you are going to repair this motor yourself...perhaps this thread will come in handy.

Horizon gave me the name Boca Bearings, but even their techs could not tell me the size of the bearings.

I would consider getting an estimate for repairs and if it's close to a new one....as I saw the same motor on sale not too long ago...then, your next option is perhaps purchasing a new one

Okay, I have measured the bearings with a micrometer and confirmed that they are a standard size. Boca Bearings is mailing me 3 of them at a price of $3.00 each.

For those of you who use EFlite 400 motors, write this down. The universal part number for the bearings is R2-5ZZ. The phone number for Boca Bearings is 800-332-3256.
