    Can someone please tell me the right bearing size???!!!

    Tilite S2 with mono fork, frog leg 4 x 1.4 soft roll lexan caster. Just bought the FL's from Sportaid to replace the tillite casters and the inner diameter of the bearings that came with them does not fit on the mono fork stem. Until now I've always had chairs with the same size caster bearings - same as skateboards and roller blades. Why would Tilite change this?

    I know there are posts about this but just want to know for sure the right size. Can anyone help? Also where best to buy?

    Thanks

    "R6-2RS" (standard skate bearings are "608-2RS")

    I've read here on CC that FLs now offers a direct replacement caster with bearings through Sportaid. Maybe you can swap your casters for the correct ones. The R6 bearings will not fit in standard casters.

        Better question - why wouldn't TiLite change this? This way they have more of a strangle-hold on replacements for their well-engineered well-tested quality parts.

        I see you are in ON - here's a link for a bearing retail chain out there - http://www.gbs.ca/en/succen.html . I have no idea if they are reputable or not. Source the R6's chas refers to below.

        Probably the best bet - ship them back and ask for the Ti mono-fork version.
