I have never had to replace bearings on my curado. I have pretty much taken the reel apart down to every piece. The ball bearing on my main drive shaft was essentially rusted to the shaft from years os salt and fresh water use. I have never stripped it down this far to clean it, so it was really dirty at the drive shaft bearing. When I removed the bearing to clean it, it was damaged. My question is, do you buy bearings in a kit (all seven bearings in the reel) specific for the 200e7 or are bearings all sold separately?

Anyone have any new bearing suggestions?

Tough bearing to find! I would spray some rem oil on it to make sure the bearing will spin freely and pack the little cup with grease that the shaft sits in. Never have another issue again this is pretty common with reels that have been used in saltwater.


5X9X3 Is the bearing size also probably can find one cheap on Amazon.
