    Question Question Re-use of Wrist pin Bearing XL1200

    I pulled my engine apart to have the cylinder bored to oversize due to oil line failure. I ordered a piston with a caged needle bearing but they failed to send the bearing that I ordered with it. The original wrist pin bearing seems to glide firmely over the wrist pin. Is there a problem using the original caged wrist pin bearing? Thanks
