    Greetings,
    just opened my new C5000FK.

    Handle knob bushing RD14171 5 x 9 x 3 mm matches the ball bearing MR95 ZZ
    Spool bushing RD16157 8 x 16 x 5 mm matches the ball bearing 688 ZZ
    Worm bushing rear RD13324 3 x 6 x2,5 mm matches the ball bearing MR63 ZZ

    Pleasantly surprised the drag washers are made of some kind of carbon material! Now eager to see in a field test.

    Hello Fellow Stradic FK Upgraders-

    Thanks to LeoNYC, I bought a 10 pack Orange Ceramic ABEC 7 bearings from a supplier he recommended. I have done MOST of the replacements but I'am having trouble taking apart the line roller assembly (RD17193) to get into that bearing. There is a Youtube video showing that you can replace a line roller bearing (Stradic FI) but it doesn't show how he opened it up
    ( ).

    Any help or info would be greatly appreciated, pics would even be better.

    Cheers,
    B

    After doing more research, I stumbled upon another forum that mentions that FK roller assembly is a one piece deal. The bearing is pressed into the line roller itself making the whole deal a one piece meal =(

    Stradic fk c5000xg ??????

    Handle knob bushing RD14171 ( 5 x 9 x 3 mm ) matches the ball bearing MR95 ZZ

    The handle knob bearing is the same ( 4x7x2.5mm )

    Which number is the right bearing ? 5x9x3mm or 4x7x2.5mm
    Thank you
    Danny

    It's usually 5x9x3 on the handle shaft and the 4x9x4 goes inside the egg knob in Shimano 5000 size reel.

    Confirm from schematic. Definitely not 4x7x2.5, those are for the 2500-4000 size reel.

    Disassemble your handle and you should find the 4x9x4 bearing inside the egg knob and a 5x9x3 bushing on the handle shaft. So you only need to replace the bushing. I just buy them on Ebay, $2-$3 each or even cheaper in pack of 10.

    For the Stradic FK, it's very hard to replace just the bearing since it's pressed in with a plastic cover. You can force it out but the white plastic piece might be deformed(I tried that when it got noisy). I ended up ordering new roller which comes complete with the pressed in bearing inside. Shimano does not sell the white plastic piece separately.

    depend on the # rating of the powerpro, but shimano website is very accurate.
