    I spent an hour or so at Bearings and Drives one day, we found the exact bearing that is made for Sea-Doo but it can not be purchased by the public, only the "un-named" OEM that spec'd the bearing. The bearing man told me the phenolic cage helps with some harmonics stuff that the bearing will have at the rpm we spin them. sounds to me like OEM is the best way to go.
    btw, our racer buddy won't use the steel caged bearings.

    the OEM FAG bearings are made in my country but i prefer the SKF 6200/C3/TN9 , also the cage is made in polyamide and best rpm is 50.000, the FAG ones they best is 45.000 rpm,
    i don´t know if SKF company deals on ths USA, but i can tell the price for 10 bearing is about 75 Euros
