Default Ceramic bearings

What are the general thoughts on ceramic bearings. I need bearings in my O.S.81 VR-M and think I am going to use ceramic. Any opinions or exp. with them??

Default RE: Ceramic bearings

Ceramic Bearings are Good but not worth the extra $$ unless your really pushing the upper RPM Ranges of your engine.
If your running the engine Stock no port, head, or carb mods, stick with a good set of stainless bearings. The [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ABEC_scale]ABEC[/link] rating is the thing to look at, the Higher the number the better.
