I'm going ready to place a bearing order for a Race Face Real Seal Headset, and I know which set of bearing I need for it. But as I sit here at work I have decided to go ahead and got a set for my 1 1/8" Chris King Headset. I just have one problem I don't have the numbers form the bearing race. Does anyone know the bearing numbers from a 1 1/8" King Headset?

King makes their own custom bearings. It's not cost effective to replace them since they are most of the cost of the headset. With moderate maintenance, they will last forever.

A lot of headset bearings have a custom bevel ground into the outboard ID of the cartridge, which may not be there on a stock part. Depends on the design of the crown and top race - check before you buy.
