    I'm trying to find the part number for this piece so that I can order a replacement. The bearing seems to be wearing out and it makes a horrible sound when running in my little linoleum floored room. I have two of these printers and the one that is still under warranty had the same issue so I had a tech come out and this is what was replaced. If anyone has a quick fix for it rather than a replacement, I would love to know. The estimate for having a tech come by and being the worse case scenario is about $1700.Thanks!

    Ive rebuilt small electric brushless motors and found out the EVERY size bearing is for sell on the net. I would just rebuilt it myself...

    This is just one of many suppliers.

    Thanks for the tip. I will see if I can permission to take it apart and have it down for a few days. My boss doesn't do or know anything mechanical so it may be a challenge.

    I'll post a link to the part supplier for these printers tomorrow when I'm at work and have the info.

    BTW, most parts on the GS6000 are identical to Mutoh parts, which may wind up costing less. I have changed the individual bearings on those pulleys, but you need to have a good set of tools and be able to remove and install press-fit (metric) bearings...
