Depends on whether or not he bought through IPF or another vendor. Sending them an email was a good idea.

I want to thank IPF for taking care of its customers, that is very professional of them. If anyone has more issues with the bearings, I have found a high speed replacement bearing capable of over 32k rpm and will run cool. They are a ceramic hybrid bearing with a high temp composite bearing cage and fully sealed, they are not cheap. I bought some to test out on my pulleys. If you are not aware, I replaced the supplied pulleys with some custom pulleys made with a larger bearing installed and a slightly larger diameter to reduce the RPM. My latest set of bearings have lasted over 7500 miles and are still good. I am experimenting with the hybrid ceramic bearings now. We all want our systems to be the best , most reliable out there, so it advantageous to experiment to see what works and what does not.

Very nice! are these interchangable with our current bearings and fit in the IPF pulleys as well or just available in the larger sizes?

You can get the silicon nitride ceramic bearings in 6003 size to fit the current IPF pulleys. Make sure you get abec 5 or 7 to insure tolerances for high speed and high temp. I have a set from work that are aerospace qual but have not put them in yet. I'm running the new bearings from IPF and monitoring.
These ceramic bearings are expensive $50 - $70 apiece but they should last.

I 2nd that. It takes a very good company to take care of all their customers.so far I'm running over 6000 miles on my pulleys not sure if I have the newer ones since I got my supercharger this year.

Hello All,

I have received a few PM's here and there regarding the bearings shipping addresses, some to Arno and some to myself, If you need assistance or have not received your parts PLEASE contact us through the proper business channels, not VIA PM. I have had sales and customer service issues fall through the cracks here. I want to make sure everyone gets the parts or information they require.

Thanks for the kind words and support from our loyal customers! However we are very busy and do not check the forums everyday. If you have an important matter, phone or email is always the most efficient way to contact us.

Myself: Andy@kpe-products.com
Tech: Support@kpe-products.com

Phone: 888.222.4291 LV MSG if no answer.
FYI - This rings to my mobile during normal business hours using option 1 or 2. I return calls and emails usually by the hour.

PM's may go unanswered for 24 hours or more.

Thanks Again!

Also wanted to thank all of our supporters here on C5 and special thanks to Sycraft and Johnny B for their efforts on the bearing issues. Sycraft has some great solutions that work very well, unrealistic for production costs but a great upgrade if you have the extra coin laying around.
