The problem is not the bearings or the crank, it was the loose tolerances Polaris had when machining the cases. Because some of the cases ended up out of "good tolerance" they would cause the bearings and crank to fail. The cheap and easy fix is to get the big boy bearing. The correct fix is to also get the cases line bored and have the crank trued while doing the bearing upgrade.
