i have a feeling you could make your own sets for less, but is it worth the extra hassle?

£160.00 would get you a better frame with sealed cartridge bearings

how would one go about making their own sets? i'd assume you'd need the measurements etc....?

not interested in getting a 'better' frame, that would defeat the object of upgrading [and keeping] this one....:P

sealed cartridge bearings are cheap as chips.
you'd just need measurements, and potentially access to some metal working tools.

im sure the 2001 enduro bolts and cartridge bearing kits would do the job and cheaper

owner of both a '98 FSR & Enduro here, there are some similarities in the 2 machines but i honestly don't think an enduro bearing kit will be 100% useable on the FSR.
some of the bearings will no doubt fit, but the linkage on the FSR & Enduros differ fairly significantly.
