Default Bearings size in Himax HC3510

Does anyone know what size the bearings are in a Himax HC3510-110 brushless outrunner motor? Mine's making noises like it needs new bearings but I'm having trouble pinning down the size. All help gratefully received :-)

BOCA bearings in Florida can probably tell you and even sell them to you. It's been awhile since I've done business with them , so I can't remember their address.
good luck

Thanks for the pointer. The Boca web site looks pretty good and lists loads of motor makers - but not Himax. I'll email Boca and ask the question.

Meanwhile if anyone knows where the bearing sizes are to be found, I'd still love to hear about it!

PS - I should have mentioned that Himax do sell bearing sets, but their shipping charge to individuals overseas is something I'd like to avoid!

Thanks - that looks like a good place to shop so I'll keep them bookmarked.

Just at the moment I've found a local dealer who occasionally imports from Himax, and he'll add some bearings for me to his next order. He too has to pay the huge fixed shipping charge, but every few weeks he does build up enough to order and make the shipping reasonable per item.
